LACERA-ADMINISTERED HEALTHCARE BENEFITS PROGRAM

The LACERA-administered healthcare benefits program applies to current retirees and members hired prior to June 30, 2014.

LACERA offers retirees a choice of medical plans, as well as two dental/vision plans. Retirees can choose an HMO or Indemnity medical plan, or select a Medicare HMO or supplemental plan. Over 40,000 retirees and dependents are currently enrolled in a LACERA-administered healthcare benefits program. In addition, for members over 65, we offer Medicare supplement or Medicare HMO plans. For a complete listing of the plans, see Healthcare Plans. Annually, you will receive a complete package in the mail containing all the LACERA healthcare options that are available.

Read details on eligibility and how the County subsidized program works.

NOTE: When you retire, you must select a new medical, dental, and vision plan within 60 days of your retirement. Your active member medical coverage will not continue after retirement.

Ask your health insurance carrier for your 1095-B.

New! On your tax return, you must verify that you and your dependents had the minimum qualifying health insurance coverage in 2015. To do this, use the information reported on your 1095-B Health Coverage tax form. In most cases, your insurance carrier is responsible for sending you this form by March 31; however, if you are enrolled in a LACERA-administered Medicare Advantage-Prescription Drug Plan (MA-PD) such as Kaiser Senior Advantage, UnitedHealthcare Group Medicare Advantage, or SCAN Health Plan, you should receive this form from Medicare.

If you have not received your 1095-B, please do not contact LACERA. Instead, call your insurance carrier or Medicare. The insurance carriers' toll-free numbers can be found here. Contact Medicare by calling 800-633-4227 or visiting medicare.gov. (2-11-16)
