OPERS Retirees Turning 65
All OPERS retirees who are not 65 yet, will make a plan selection through OneExchange during a seven month period beginning 3 months before turning 65, the birth month, and ending 3 months after the month in which a retiree turns 65.
There are a lot of factors to consider when choosing a healthcare plan. To help you make an informed decision, we have developed a checklist that you can use during your OneExchange enrollment consultation, so you can be sure you have a plan that is affordable, follows you where you travel, and covers your Wexner Medical Center and James Cancer Hospital doctors at your lowest out-of-pocket cost.
