Health Care Premium Discount Program

The Health Care Premium Discount Program may provide help to lower-income benefit recipients enrolled in SERS’ coverage. To qualify, at least one family member enrolled in SERS health care coverage must be eligible for Medicare.

A 25% reduction in your monthly SERS health care premium for medical and prescription drugs is available if your total household income falls at or below qualifying income levels. The discount does not apply to dental and vision premiums.

To receive a discount, your total household income must be at or below the following levels:

 Household Size

 1  $14,850
 2  $20,025
 3  $25,200
 4  $30,375
 5  $35,550
 6  $40,725
 7  $45,913
 8  $51,113


To apply, you must complete and sign a Health Care Premium Discount Application and return it to SERS.

A new application must be completed every year to continue qualifying for the premium discount.
