ASRS HEALTH INSURANCE IMPORTANT NOTICE: University Optional Retirement Plan Retirees are Eligible for ASRS Retiree Health Insurance Plans
University employees (ASU, UA, and NAU) who retired and who participated in the University Optional Retirement Plans (UORP) are eligible to enroll in the Arizona State Retirement System (ASRS) retiree health insurance program. Though you have eligibility to continue your enrollment in the Arizona Department of Administration’s (ADOA) Benefit Options health insurance plans, you also may consider enrollment in the ASRS’s retiree plans.
You are encouraged to review the ASRS benefit provisions of the plans for which you may be eligible (both Medicare and non-Medicare) on the ASRS website, www.azasrs.gov, under the Retirees tab then select Healthcare, for additional details. Please note that while the official open enrolment has closed, representatives of ASRS indicated in a meeting with representatives of ASURA that retirees falling into this category could still opt to change to an ASRS Plan before 12/31/2016.
