Webinar: Implications of Coming Medicare Part D Changes for Retiree Health Plans

March 19
1–2 PM ET

As a retiree health plan sponsor, you know that while offering retiree health benefits carries significant financial burdens, the importance of that coverage to your people cannot be overstated. Not only do those benefits reduce retirees’ healthcare costs and alleviate anxiety, they also foster loyalty in those who are still working.

Consequently, you carefully weigh the costs against the long-term benefits. Part of that calculation may include exploring innovative solutions and forward-thinking strategies.

In light of recent guidance from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, which provides more detail on how the provisions of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) will work, including information on how the new benefit changes will affect Employer Group Waiver Plans (EGWPs).

In this webinar...

You will learn more about:

  • How the coming changes made by the IRA will impact your plan operationally, strategically and financially
  • Reconsidering the Retiree Drug Subsidy versus an EGWP and taking advantage of federal subsidies
  • How the market landscape will change for Medicare Advantage plans
  • Why a new definition of creditable coverage could impact your plan for active participants
  • Next steps for preserving the value of your retiree health benefit package cost effectively
