Working to 65 and Beyond...
Understanding Medicare and It's Impact on Group Health Coverage


Engaging with issues surrounding the aging American workforce is an area of growing importance for HR professionals. Increasingly, employees are staying on the job to age 65 and beyond, and according to most surveys, the cost of health care in retirement looms large as a major concern.

These factors all collide when employees reach age 65 and Medicare-eligibility encounters their Group Health Plan.
