Continuing in 2022, eligible Post-Age 65 retirees will receive their healthcare coverage through an exchange program, which replaced the retiree group benefit program. The East Tennessee Technology Park (ETTP) Retiree Healthcare Exchanges, options, and stipend process will remain in effect for 2022. The annual employer-paid stipend amount for 2022 is $2,640.
An annual employer paid tax free stipend, payable through a Retiree Reimbursement Account (RRA), will be made available to eligible retirees and eligible spouses to help offset the cost “incurred in claims” of the healthcare coverage elected. If you are an eligible retiree, you may sign up for the ETTP Retiree Healthcare Exchange program during the applicable benefits annual open enrollment period. However, you must elect the healthcare exchange coverage through the UCOR ETTP Retiree Healthcare Exchange program in order to receive the stipend. As a reminder, an eligible retiree must be enrolled in the ETTP medical coverage in order for eligible spouse to enroll in Pre- or Post-Age 65 retiree medical coverage (this does not apply to surviving spouse).
Additional information regarding the ETTP Retiree Healthcare Exchange will be posted to this web site as information becomes available.
