If you are enrolled in a DePaul medical plan at time of retirement, you have the ability to enroll in DePaul’s retiree medical coverage. More information will be provided at time of retirement. In lieu of retiree medical coverage, you may elect medical plan continuation under COBRA for up to 18 months. If you elect medical coverage through COBRA, you will irrevocably waive the retiree medical coverage and will not be permitted to enroll in the retiree medical plan when your COBRA benefits end.

The Blue Cross Medicare Advantage plan is for DePaul retirees who are age 65 and over and eligible for Medicare. Find FAQs and several benefits of this plan that go above and beyond standard insurance benefits.
An eligible employee who retires from DePaul University with a related or an unrelated Second Domiciled Adult (SDA) covered on the medical plan at the time of retirement may continue to cover the SDA as long as he/she continues to meet the Plan’s eligibility requirements. Refer to the Health Benefits Plans Summary Plan Description for additional details regarding eligibility and coverage.
The retired employee must pay the full cost of a Related SDA’s coverage regardless of the retired employee’s grandfathered group classification under the terms of the retiree medical plan. DePaul will share in the cost of coverage for an Unrelated SDA based on the retired employee’s grandfathered group classification (Refer to the Understanding Retiree Medical Plan Changes Brochure).
