UNDERSTANDING YOUR MEDICARE PROGRAM OPTIONS
As part of your retiree healthcare benefits program, you have the option to select a group sponsored plan or an Individual plan from our Medicare Private Exchange.
Please note that while the plans are similar we cannot guarantee that your physician is in the approved network or that your medications are covered in the formulary. Therefore, we recommend you contact an AmWINS Benefit Specialist to verify these important plan details. You can contact a Benefit Specialist at 1-877-847-9906.
Before calling, we recommend you have the following information:
- A list of your current prescription drugs

Visit AmWINS’ Medicare Exchange to research your options. To enroll in an Individual Plan you will need to contact an AmWINS Benefit Specialist at 1-877-847-9906.

HEALTH REIMBURSEMENT ACCOUNT (HRA)
If you elect an Individual Plan you will be enrolled in an HRA, administered by Genesis Employee Benefits (Genesis), a Division of TASC (Total Administrative Services Corporation). Funds in an HRA may be used to reimburse you for health insurance premiums and other qualified medical expenses as defined by the IRS (deductibles, copays, coinsurance, dental/vision expenses, etc.). Unused funds in your HRA will rollover for use in the next calendar year. TASC will mail a Welcome Package to eligible recipients with additional information on utilizing this account. There is no additional cost to enroll in an HRA.
