Enrollment - State Pensioners - Medicare Eligible

The State Employee Benefits Committee (SEBC) held its monthly meeting on October 24, 2022, and to comply with Judge Calvin Scott’s interim ruling, the SEBC voted to extend the Medicfill contract for state pensioners for 12 months pursuant to the Emergency Procedures and Critical Need for Professional Services provision of the procurement code, 29 Del. C. § 6907. Pending the resolution of the litigation, the SEBC will consider its options for Calendar Year 2024, which include renegotiation of the Highmark BCBS Delaware Medicare Advantage PPO plan contract and rebidding of the State Medicare health plan.

During the week of October 31, 2022, State of Delaware Medicare eligible pensioners will be mailed additional information regarding Special Medicfill enrollment for the plan year that begins January 1, 2023. These important mailings are also posted on the State of Delaware Medicare Open Enrollment website under Communications.

Enrollment in the Special Medicfill with prescription plan will automatically continue for individuals currently enrolled. Benefit eligible pensioners who are enrolled in the Special Medicfill without prescription plan or who have waived coverage for the current plan year, will be given the opportunity to make changes effective January 1, 2023.
