You can explore most -- but not all -- of your options without creating an AlightRHS Retiree account yet (or without disturbing your current AlightRHS Retiree account settings.)


Note:

- AlightRHS does not offer all Medicare plans potentially available in your area. All plans are listed on the official Medicare site:
Advantage Plans:   https://www.medicare.gov/plan-compare/  
Medigap and Drug Plans: https://www.medicare.gov/medigap-supplemental-insurance-plans/

Prominent examples of plans that were not on the Alight website for 2022:

  - AARP/UHC. Not all AARP Medicare plans are on the list of plans available from insurance sales agencies such as AlightRHS -- you have to explicitly ask the advisor for the AARP/UHC plans. (Our AlightRHS contact indicated that this is "UHC AARP's marketing requirement.") Check the AARP/UHC website to see what is available in your local area: https://www.aarpmedicareplans.com To buy a Medicare Supplement plan, you need to join the AARP -- well worth the $16 per year for the publications and other benefits. Alight will ask you for your member number, which needs to be current. You do not need to be an AARP member to buy an AARP Advantage or Drug plan.

  - Kaiser. Kaiser individual Medicare HMO plans are generally not on the list of plans available from insurance sales agencies -- including AlightRHS.

  - Regence. For 2022, AlightRHS offered the popular Regence plans in ID -- unclear if available from AlightRHS in OR, UT, or WA.
