UT SELECT and Medicare for Retirees

The UT SELECT medical insurance program varies for retirees depending on Medicare eligibility and employment status.

Fully Retired

  • If you or one of your dependents is Medicare eligible, it is important to enroll in Medicare Parts A and B as UT SELECT medical insurance will assume that you are even if you are not and will function as secondary insurance. Please see the section on UT SELECT and Medicare  for Retired Employees.
  • If neither you nor your dependents are Medicare eligible, your UT SELECT medical plan will continue to be used in the same way as when you were an active employee.

Return-to-Work Retirees

If you return to work with the UT System in a benefits-eligible position after retiring and:

  • If you or one of your dependents is Medicare eligible, UT SELECT will be your primary insurance, much the same as a current employee. Medicare will be used as a secondary insurance.
  • If neither you nor your dependents are Medicare eligible, your UT SELECT Medical plan will continue to be used in the same way as when you were an active employee.
