Becoming Eligible for Medicare?

If you are an active member of the PHBP Medical Plan and over age 65, you will continue to be covered by the Plan as you were before age 65. If you are a retired member of the Plan, this Plan will act as Secondary Payor to Medicare and will include some coordinated benefits. If you are not eligible for health coverage upon retirement, the Joint Industry Board will notify you of your right to elect COBRA continuation coverage. You will then have 60 days from that notice to complete a COBRA Application Form.
