Retiree Billing Policy

Retirees, employees on leave status, and COBRA participants are continued on the institution's benefit programs upon request and are required to remit premiums for coverage on a monthly basis. These premiums are billed at the close of each month. However, premiums are paid in advance.

Please contact Shared Services for billing information.

You may contact the SSC Call Center via:

Where appropriate, coverage may be canceled based on non-payment of premiums or other qualifying circumstances. Participants will be notified when coverage is to be terminated.


Pre-65 Retirees that qualify as a USG retiree, will continue their current USG medical, dental, vision and life insurance in retirement. Sixty-five and older retirees will be provided healthcare coverage to Medicare-eligible retirees through the Aon Retiree Health Exchange.
