Post-65 Retiree USG Open Enrollment

USG retirees over the age of 65 receive supplemental insurance through the Aon Retiree Health Exchange, in addition to any USG plans that they may choose to enroll in.

USG and the Aon Retiree Health Exchange do not have the same Open Enrollment periods, meaning you’ll have a few important dates to remember if you’d like to change your coverage. No worries! We’re here to help.

How do I make changes?
Visit retiree.aon.com/usg or call 1-866-212-5052 Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Eastern time. If you have questions, contact the Aon Retiree Health Exchange at 1-866-212-5052 to schedule an appointment with a dedicated Benefits Advisor.

Please note that if you’re enrolled in Supplemental Insurance, don’t worry if your Benefits Advisor schedules an appointment after December 7. Medicare supplement changes can be made up to December 31, 2020.

Make the most of your Health Reimbursement Account
If you’re enrolled in a healthcare and/or prescription plan through the Aon Retiree Health Exchange, then you also have access to a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA). This account helps you feel confident in your finances by reimbursing you for eligible premiums and expenses, including most prescription drugs and out-of-pocket healthcare expenses, Medicare Supplemental premiums and vision/dental premiums. USG is pleased to contribute up to $2,736 to your HRA in 2021.

For more information and to manage your HRA, use the Your Spending AccountTM (YSA) website on retiree.aon.com/USG https://retiree.aon.com/USG. We’ll also be holding virtual help sessions on December 14, 2020 and January 12, 2021 to help you learn how to best use the YSA website and how to get support. Be on the lookout for more information from the Aon Retiree Health Exchange in mid-November.
