SHBP Retiree Options

Before you transition into retirement, review the SHBP Retirement Coverage Presentation at:


In order to continue your SHBP coverage as a retiree, you and any dependents you want covered must be enrolled in the plan while you are an active member.


If you are retiring and you or your covered dependents are age 65 or older (or will be turning age 65 at your retirement), you have the option of:

1. Enrolling in a SHBP Medicare Advantage with Prescription Drugs (MAPD) Plan Option if you submit your Medicare Part B enrollment information directly to SHBP, or

2. Remaining in a Commercial (Non-Medicare Advantage) Plan Option, and you will pay 100% of the unsubsidized premium, which is substantially higher than the SHBP Medicare Advantage Plan Options. Medicare Advantage Plan Options are the only Plan Options subsidized by SHBP for Retirees age 65 and older.
