Potential changes to UC Medicare Plans: Information & Feedback Session

Information sessions will be held on May 31st, June 4th, and June 7th, to review the new UC Medicare PPO Advantage plan which may potentially be replacing the current UC Medicare plans.

Frank Trueba serves on the proposal committee for the Medicare Advantage PPO and will lead both sessions providing an update on the process and timeline of the committee, along with a presentation explaining how Medicare Advantage PPO plans work—current UC Medicare plan offerings are supplemental or Advantage HMO.
