Coordination of Retiree Health Benefits with Medicare and State Health Benefits


On December 26, 2007, the EEOC published its final rule permitting an exemption from the ADEA for employers

who offer retiree health care benefits that coordinate with Medicare. The final rule confirms the ability of employers to continue the practice of offering retirees eligible for Medicare benefits that differ from those offered to retirees who are under the age of 65. The exemption is effective immediately and applies to all current or newly created retiree benefits plans.
