Group Medicare — health care solutions for retirees

Whether you are considering adding retiree health care coverage, maintaining health plan benefits for your retirees or looking into other options, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota has a plan that fits.

We’ve designed Group Medicare retiree health plans for nearly all types of employers and organizations, including publicly held corporations, privately owned companies, nonprofits, government and public entities and Taft-Hartley trust funds.

If your organization chooses not to offer retiree coverage, individual Medicare coverage from Blue Cross is also an option. We can help your retirees understand the plans that are available so they can easily transition from your group plan to an individual Medicare plan.
