Insurance Coverage in Your Retirement Years
Health Insurance Options
The Health Options Program operates for the sole benefit of participants of the Pennsylvania Public School Employees’ Retirement System (PSERS), their dependents, and survivors. The Health Options Program offers comprehensive medical coverage before and after you become eligible for Medicare.
Dental and Vision Insurance
Another area to be aware of is your dental and vision coverage. It is recommended that you have everything taken care of while still in active service. Some districts do allow retirees to remain in the plans they were enrolled in while actively employed at cost, including dental and vision insurance plans. However, an increasing number of districts are not permitting retirees to maintain the additional coverage for dental and vision needs.
PASR offers extremely competitive dental and vision insurance plans to its members. In fact, many retirees have discovered that PASR’s plans are the best value with the best coverage. For more on our dental and vision coverage, as well as the many other benefits offered to PASR state members, please consult our Member Benefits.
