HP and HPE "What's Changing" Summaries and Enrollment Guides  (Updated Nov 6, 2022.) Operated by volunteers. Not officially endorsed or supported.

To cover changes after the Enrollment Guide booklets were printed, HP has developed  "What's changing for 2023" summaries -- which are not available on myhpbenefits.com. (They are available here -- and on HP's separate "HP Continuum" password-protected retiree site: https://www.hpcontinuum.com )

Tip: 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.)

"HP Retiree Medical Program" vs "Pre-2003 HP Retiree Medical Program" -- official explanation.

"Your medical coverage is determined by your HP retiree medical program.

● Most recent HP retirees qualify for the HP Retiree Medical Program under which retirees pay the full cost of coverage with potential HP funding to the Retirement Medical Savings Account.
[HPAA comment: This is the current retiree program.]

● You might qualify for one of the legacy Retiree Medical Programs as follows:

- Pre-2003 HP Retiree Medical Program: May apply if you retired from HP before 2003, or if you were with HP on December 31, 2002, and retired at a later date with eligibility for the program (this typically meant retiring at age 55 or later with at least 15 years of qualifying service, having at least 62 age-plus-service “points” as of December 31, 2005, and being within five years of qualifying as of June 30, 2007). This program generally does not apply if you joined HP through the Compaq or EDS acquisitions.
[HPAA comment: "2003" refers to the year when HP implemented the program, not necessarily your year of retirement. Details and copy of official HP below.]

- Digital Retiree Health Program: May apply if you retired from Digital Equipment Corporation before the Compaq acquisition, or if you were paid on the former Digital payroll as of February 28, 1999, were at least age 50 with five years of qualifying service at that time and retired from Compaq or HP at age 55 or later with at least 10 years of qualifying service.

If you’re still not sure, refer to the cover of the printed enrollment guide mailed to your home, or contact the HP Benefits Center."
