Retired commonwealth employees eligible for medical insurance are part of the REHP. The REHP (Retired Employees Health Plan) is administered by the Office of Administration and PEBTF (PA Employees Benefit Trust Fund). Although these medical benefits are not guaranteed, the Office of Administration has acknowledged that these benefits are in part a recognition of the service provided by the retirees.
Each year at the annual PARSE Governing Board Meeting the Office of Administartion does a presentation on retiree medical benefits and any chages or addition to those programs.
The Office of Administration has announced a new retiree Medicare Plan effective January 2020. See the announcement below.
