PERACare is PERA's health benefits program available to retirees, benefit recipients and their eligible dependents. The benefit programs offered by PERA include health, dental, and vision care programs, and you may enroll in any or all three types of coverage. You may enroll or make changes to your coverage during open enrollment in October and November of each year.
Health care may be one of your biggest concerns in retirement. If you are retired, or about to retire, you may want to check out a 45-minute PERACare Information Webinar that explains the retiree health care, dental and vision plan insurance options offered through PERA.
Retiree health plans are offered for people under 65 and for people over 65 and on Medicare, so please choose a webinar based on your age. If you would like to cover your spouse and/or child(ren) and some of you are over age 65 and eligible for Medicare and others are not, we suggest you check out both webinars. We’ll cover everything you need to know including an overview of the plans, enrollment opportunities, and paperwork you’ll need to submit.
Under age 65?
