May 15, 2020

If you're covered through the Group Insurance Commission (GIC), approaching age 65 and eligible for Medicare, take a close look at UniCare's Medicare Extension plan for the 2020-2021 plan year. Our annual enrollment guide shows you some important things to think about when choosing a Medicare plan, like:

  • You can use any doctor and any hospital in the U.S.
  • You'll get the highest benefit when you use Medicare participating providers.
  • You're covered for care when you travel outside the U.S.
  • Your prescriptions are covered.
  • Your Medicare coinsurance and deductible are covered, and you pay no calendar year deductible.
  • You're covered for some things Medicare doesn't cover – like hearing aids and routine eye exams.

Here are just a few of the other advantages of being a UniCare Medicare Extension member:

  • Best-in-class member service, with consistently high member satisfaction ratings
  • Our Mobile Health Consumer app, for access to all your health care information in one place
  • Well-being programs to help you live your best life, plus a $100 reimbursement toward your fitness club membership
