TI Health Insurance Seminar, October 23, 2018

On October 23, 2018, two seminars were held at the Plano Event Center in Plano, TX to discuss TI health insurance plans, Social Security info and medical changes that would be of interest to TI retirees.  The first one was at 10am for pre-65 TI retirees and there were about 100 in attendance who enjoyed the goodies furnished by TI before the meeting began.  The second one was at 1:30 pm for Medicare-eligible TI retirees and around 385 came to hear the news, ask questions about health insurance plans and to partake in TI's refreshments. The TIAA Education VP, Lisa Calloway, started the meetings by introducing David Carter, a representative from Via Benefits, who covered insurance supplemental plan changes, various reimbursement options, Donut holes and answered attendees' questions. He also stressed that TI retirees should call 1-844-638-4642 if they needed help with their insurance questions. Dr. Kevin Soden then provided a medical update on shingles and the latest shot (Shingrix)  to hopefully prevent it.  Stacey Holsinger from TI said that the Retirement Reimbursement Accounts would be funded in 2019 at the same rate as in 2018. Here is the pre-65  presentation and here is the  post-65 presentation.
