Medical - Under Age 65
As a retired University of Minnesota employee, you pay the full cost of your medical benefits. However, because you are still included in the University's employee group contracts, the rates you pay are lower than what you would pay for a similar individual plan. Your monthly rates will depend on the plan you choose.

You may choose a medical plan that is available where you live or worked. For example, if you live in the Greater Minnesota zone but worked in the Duluth area zone, you can choose a plan in either zone.
Additional Medical Services
Worldwide emergency medical assistance, travel assistance services, and evacuation services for political or natural disaster causes are available when you are 100 or more miles away from home. You are automatically enrolled in the program when you enroll in any one of the medical plan options.
When traveling or attending college outside of the plan's service area, you may receive in-network benefits for your medical services if you use a provider in the designated network from Medica.
