To Receive an Exchange-HRA Contribution
An eligible retiree must obtain and maintain medical coverage through the Medicare Exchange with Via Benefits. TRICARE for Life retirees are not required to enroll in a medical plan; however, they must provide PEBP with a copy of their TRICARE for Life Military ID card front and back and Medicare Parts A and B card.
IMPORTANT: HRA funds through the Consumer Driven Health Plan (CDHP) are not transferable to an HRA through the Medicare Exchange. If a retiree on the CDHP terminates coverage or transitions to the Medicare Exchange, any remaining funds in the CDHP HRA account revert to PEBP. Medicare Exchange HRA balances are capped at $8,000 on May 31st of each year. Although members can accrue more than $8,000 throughout the plan year, any balances over $8,000 will be reduced to the cap.
