Retired Members Health Plan

Retired clergy, diaconal ministers, and full-time lay employees of the Conference or participating institution can elect to be covered under the Conference healthcare plan (2015 Journal).   

Effective January 1, 2016, the Kentucky Annual Conference Board of Pensions and Health Benefits elected to cover its Medicare-eligible retirees through OneExchange. OneExchange is a company focused on linking Medicare-eligible participants with Medicare supplemental plans, offering more choices for participants and their spouses.

Retirees of the Kentucky Conference who are not yet Medicare eligible (pre65) have the option to remain covered by the Active Members Health Plan until such time as they are Medicare eligible. Eligibility rules can be found in the Board of Pensions and Health Benefits report of the 2016 Conference Journal
