PSERS Health Options Program
Virtual Benefits Fair

Welcome to the PSERS Health Options Program Virtual Benefits Fair!

Get to Know the Health Options Program

Retiree health benefits designed especially for you! The Health Options Program is exclusively for Pennsylvania Public School Employees’ Retirement System (PSERS) retirees and their eligible dependents.

Watch this video, and consider whether the Health Options Program is right for you. Added bonus: Premium Assistance—a special financial incentive that is not available with a commercial program. Don’t miss out on your chance to save $100 per month toward your monthly premium!

Navigating the Virtual Benefits Fair

When you enroll in the Health Options Program, you have the option to enroll in a plan that supplements Original Medicare. Or you can enroll in a plan that replaces Original Medicare entirely (Medicare Advantage plan). Click on the sections below to learn more about each. When you are ready to decide, go to the Enroll section. You cannot enroll in both options! Be sure to review the plans available under each option, including additional benefit plans like dental and vision and wellness programs, before you make a selection.
