Open Enrollment – The Hartford Retiree Health Insurance Plans

Current Members

Fall marks the annual open enrollment period for The Hartford* Retiree Health Insurance Plan members. This is a good time to review your health care needs for the coming year and make any changes necessary to ensure your coverage will be updated for 2018. For 2018, you can make the following changes:

• Switch from one plan to another (if eligible)
• Add a spouse to your coverage (both member and spouse must be covered by the same plan)
• Drop coverage for a spouse or for both a member and a spouse

In October, Hartford members received a mailing from UMR detailing open enrollment options and including a change form to complete and return to UMR, if changes are needed. If no changes are required, you do not have to do anything. Your current elections will remain in effect for 2018.

Open enrollment ends November 22, and changes made during open enrollment will become effective January 1, 2018. UMR will send confirmation statements following receipt of the completed change form.

Prospective Members

Annuitants who are eligible for Medicare and are not enrolled in The Hartford Retiree Health Insurance Plans can contact UMR to receive an information packet for coverage effective January 1, 2018. Open enrollment ends on November 22.
