Enrollment Guides

We have searchable copies of the Annual Enrollment Guides for HP, HPE, and DEC retirees here on the HP Alumni Association website. (Operated by volunteers. Not officially endorsed or supported.)

Many changes. Lots packed into an Enrollment Guide. Go through your Guide very carefully -- and mark it up.

Even if you have a paper copy, download the current file and use Adobe Reader's search feature to find specific words or phrases. (Press Ctrl and F together on a PC -- or Command and F on a Mac.)

Scroll down for HPE Enrollment Guides...

Depending on age, years of service, and other factors, you may qualify for what HP confusingly calls the "Pre-2003 HP Retiree Medical Program" -- as opposed to the current "HP Retiree Medical Program." ("2003" refers to the year in which HP cut back the program, not your year of retirement.) Details: https://www.hpalumni.org/Pre2003

Alight Retiree Health Solutions (formerly Aon Retiree Health Exchange) is an insurance brokerage that carries a wide range of Medicare plans. HP and HPE have selected Alight Retiree Health Solutions as their exclusive broker to provide company-subsidized open-market Medicare plans to employees and retirees. You pay list price directly to the carrier or HMO. You are then reimbursed through a special Retiree Reimbursement Account. (Alight Retiree Health Solutions is a separate company from Alight Benefits Administration, which runs the HP Benefits Center.)  See Medicare via HP or HPE


HP, "Pre-2003" HPE, and DEC retirees:

Two HP Enrollment Guides. One for cases where the retiree and all dependents are eligible for Medicare. The second is for all other cases. Neither Guide mentions that there are two Guides.

If eligible for Medicare:

- 2022 HP Retiree Benefits Enrollment Guide - Medicare.
Subtitle: "For US retirees who are eligible for Medicare"
On rear cover: "For eligible US retirees of HP Inc. and acquired companies."
[Cover: Couple on two bicycles.]
https://www.hpalumni.org/2022HPIncEnrollmentGuide-Medicare.pdf  
Be sure to go through the critical info throughout the Guide
-- including "Medical re-enrollment rules" in tiny white-on-blue type on page 13. 

- A separate insert in the mailing explains the Aon Retiree Health Exchange [now Alight Retiree Health Solutions] process in detail: “Find out how much you could save through Aon Retiree Health Exchange." 
https://www.hpalumni.org/2022HPIncSaveThroughARHE.pdf

If not yet eligible for Medicare -- or have a mix of Medicare and non-Medicare to cover:

- 2022 HP Retiree Benefits Enrollment Guide - Pre-65 and split families - i.e. non-Medicare.
Subtitle: "For US retirees who are not yet eligible for Medicare or who cover a mix of Medicare-eligible and non-Medicare-eligible family members." 
On rear cover: "For eligible US retirees of HP Inc. and acquired companies."

Be sure to go through the critical info throughout the Guide
-- including "Medical re-enrollment rules" in tiny type on page 24.

We have a sample of an HP personalized Annual Enrollment cover letter for someone on the Pre-2003 HP Retiree Medical Program located here on this website: 2022HPIncSampleStatement-Aon.pdf 


HPE (Hewlett Packard Enterprise) retirees:

Some HPE retirees are covered by an HP retiree medical program. Depending on age, years of service, and other factors, you may qualify for what HP confusingly calls the "Pre-2003 HP Retiree Medical Program" -- as opposed to the current "HP Retiree Medical Program." ("2003" refers to the year in which HP cut back the program, not your year of retirement.) Legally retirees of HPE. However, HPE has paid HPInc to administer health benefits for those HPE retirees. (All other responsibilities for HPE retirees, such as verification of HPE employment, are handled by HPE.)

How to tell if you are qualified for Pre-2003: https://www.hpalumni.org/Pre2003

- If not on the "Pre-2003" HP Retiree Medical Program: 2022 HP Enterprise Retiree Enrollment Guide
[Black cover: Hikers, hammock, trio, two hands.]
https://www.hpalumni.org/2022HPE-RetireeEnrollmentGuide.pdf 
Be sure to go through the critical info on page 19.

Coverage through another employer (through spouse/domestic partner's employer or your own employer. Coverage under a public health insurance exchange or Alight Retiree Health Solutions (formerly Aon) Retiree Health Exchange. If you die after declining HPE coverage."
