Delaware may extend retiree health plan, delay shift to Medicare Advantage

Posted On: Apr. 3, 2023 10:00 AM CST

A Delaware employee benefits committee will vote April 24 on whether to again extend retirees’ current health insurance for another six months, Town Square Live reports. The State Employee Benefits Committee will vote on a recommendation from its retiree subcommittee about whether to extend the current plan, as it did in October amid an uproar over a planned change in retiree benefits, the report says. The extension stems from opposition to the benefits committee’s plan last year to move all retirees into a Medicare Advantage plan instead of the current health care plan that operates more like a standard Medicare supplement plan.
