Enrollment Guides for HP, HPI, HPE, and DEC retirees. (Updated Oct 27, 2020.) Contact the HPAA volunteers: info@hpalumni.org 

Tip: Lots packed into the Enrollment Guides. Even if you have a paper copy, much easier to use if you download the current copy and use Adobe Reader's search feature to find specific words or phrases. (To search for a word or phrase in a pdf file, press Ctrl and F together on a PC -- or Command and F on a Mac.)


HP/HPInc retirees -- 2021:

Two HP/HPInc Enrollment Guides this year. One for cases where the retiree and all dependents are eligible for Medicare. The second is for other cases. The only reference to that issue is in the subtitles on the covers of the two booklets.

If eligible for Medicare:

- 2021 HPInc Retiree Enrollment Guide - Medicare.
Subtitle: "For US retirees who are eligible for Medicare" (Cover: Man with child and stuffed tiger.)
https://www.hpalumni.org/2021HPIncEnrollmentGuide-Medicare.pdf  
Be sure to go through the critical info in your Enrollment Guide
-- including changing HPInc or HPE plans, dropping and re-enrolling, loss of spouse/partner's coverage, and dependent coverage following your death. (HPInc: Inside rear cover.) 

- A separate HPInc insert in the mailing explains the Aon process in detail: “Take time to consider the Aon Retiree Health Exchange” 
https://www.hpalumni.org/2021HPIncConsiderARHE.pdf

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

- 2021 HPInc Retiree 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."  (Cover: Woman in jeans jacket.)
https://www.hpalumni.org/2021HPIncEnrollmentGuide-NonMedicare.pdf 
Be sure to go through the critical info in your Enrollment Guide
-- including changing HPInc or HPE plans, dropping and re-enrolling, loss of spouse/partner's coverage, and dependent coverage following your death. (HPInc: Inside rear cover.)

HP Enterprise retirees -- 2021:

Note: HPE retirees who are qualified for the "Pre-2003" retirement program -- which refers to the year when HP's U.S. retiree medical program was redesigned to be much less generous -- not the year retired -- are legally retirees of HPE. However, HPE has paid HPInc to administer health benefits for those HPE retirees. (All other responsibilities, such as employment verification, are handled by HPE.) How to tell if you are qualified for Pre-2003: https://www.hpalumni.org/Pre2003

- If not on Pre-2003 program: 2021 HP Enterprise Retiree Enrollment Guide (Black cover: Doctor, tablet, man rowing.)
https://www.hpalumni.org/2021HPEnterpriseRetireeEnrollmentGuide.pdf 
Be sure to go through the critical info in your Enrollment Guide
-- including changing HPInc or HPE plans, dropping and re-enrolling, loss of spouse/partner's coverage, and dependent coverage following your death. (HPE: Page 18.)

- If on Pre-2003 program: Use the appropriate one of the HPInc Enrollment Guides listed above.

- If on Medicare, an HPInc page explains the Aon process in detail. HPE's is essentially the same. “Take time to consider the Aon Retiree Health Exchange”

In 2020, HPE retirees who tried to access their Enrollment Guide on HPE's Benefits site were presented with the guide for current employees. (Cover -- bearded man hiking with toddler in backpack.) Turns out that the HPE Retiree Enrollment Guide (cover -- gray-haired couple with lollipop) was located in the "Document Library" on the site.
