Medicare Health Insurance for AFGE Members and Retirees

Many Union members and retirees with Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) coverage are looking for additional insurance to help limit out-of-pocket costs.

The resources offered by eHealth can help you navigate your Medicare Plan options and choose the right Medicare plan for you and your spouse, based on your budget and needs. eHealth can provide information about many different insurance companies and Medicare plans at no additional cost to you with no obligation to enroll. 

Union members, retirees and their families can now easily search and shop for Medicare plans using eHealth’s recommendation tool or by speaking to an eHealth licensed insurance agent.

You have the option to find plans in your area online, compare plans and select one based on monthly premium, annual deductible, as well as copayments and coinsurance for various services.

Check to see if you have retiree health insurance available directly from your union and/or employer. Then we can help determine the other plan coverage you or your family need, including:

Our union has faced life-threatening challenges before, but these threats are different. We have politicians in the White House, the House, and the Senate who are hell bent on wiping us out. We have never had our union contracts unilaterally annulled, our union volunteers kicked out of offices, our work fighting injustice severely restricted or denied. That’s why this national convention is extremely important. The stakes have never been higher – and that's why our 41st Triennial National Convention is so important.
