Retiree HRA Plan Advantages

  • You select the coverage that is right for you

  • The county annually funds the HRA ($600 in 2018 & 2019*)

  • $0 premium plans are available

  • The HRA moves with you if you relocate

  • You can use HRA funds to "buy-up" to another plan

  • If your selected plan costs less than the HRA funding amount, you can use excess funds to pay for copays and other IRS allowable medical expenses

  • Roll over unspent funds from year to year

* Retirees required to contribute to the cost of healthcare benefits will not receive the full HRA allocation, e.g. The HRA of retirees with a 15% contribution towards the cost of their retiree healthcare would be funded at $510 ($600 minus 15%). More info at MonroeRetirees.com
