The LGHIB has selected UnitedHealthcare® (UHC) to offer a custom UnitedHealthcare® Group Medicare Advantage (PPO) plan for all eligible retirees and their Medicare-eligible dependents. This plan has been exclusively designed for the LGHIB retirees. Only eligible retirees of local government units who have chosen to provide Medicare retiree coverage and their Medicare-eligible dependents can enroll in this plan.
