Medicare Enrollment and STRS Ohio

Ohio educators are eligible for Medicare at age 65 even if not eligible for Social Security benefits. STRS Ohio requires all eligible health care plan participants to enroll in Medicare Part B (medical insurance) and pay a monthly premium to Medicare. Participants must also enroll in Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) if it is available at no cost from Medicare.

This program will provide an overview of the “parts” of Medicare, the importance of signing up, when and how to enroll, how Medicare enrollment affects your STRS Ohio health care plan options and how to select a new STRS Ohio health care plan after Medicare enrollment.

This program is also offered as a webinar.
