Medicare Advantage Plans

For Plan Year 2017, the State Health Benefits Program (SHBP) will offer additional Medicare Advantage Plans, sometimes called “Part C” or “MA Plans.” Medicare Advantage Plans provide Medicare Part A (inpatient hospital insurance) and Medicare Part B (outpatient medical insurance) coverage.

As of January 1, 2017, Medicare-covered retired group members of the SHBP that participate in Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey’s NJ DIRECT 10 and NJ DIRECT 15 will begin coverage under Horizon Medicare Advantage NJ DIRECT 10 (PPO) and  Horizon Medicare Advantage NJ DIRECT 15 (PPO). The Horizon Medicare Advantage plans are not offered to retirees covered by the School Employees’ Health Benefits Program (SEHBP).

SHBP and SEHBP Medicare-covered retirees will continue to have access to the following Aetna Medicare Advantage plans: Aetna Medicare Advantage PPO ESA 10; Aetna Medicare Advantage PPO ESA 15; Aetna Medicare Advantage HMO 10; and Aetna Medicare Advantage HMO 1525.
