Columbia University is offering a new way to provide access to medical and prescription drug coverage for Medicare-eligible Officer retirees and their Medicare-eligible spouses.

We have partnered with Via Benefits to offer participants a wide selection of health care plans including lower cost options with coverage comparable to the current retiree medical UnitedHealthcare plans.

Via Benefits is the nation’s oldest and largest private Medicare marketplace. Participants will work directly with an experienced benefit advisor to provide personalized, unbiased support.

In addition, Columbia will offer a tax-free Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) if you enroll in a medical plan through Via Benefits. Additional Catastrophic Rx HRA funding is available for eligible retirees that may face out-of-pocket cost burden after reaching the catastrophic Medicare Part D threshold.
