2018 Open Enrollment Notifications and Documents

This year’s Open Enrollment for the Police and Fire Retiree Health Care Trust (VEBA) will be a passive enrollment for most enrollee’s. That means that if you are currently enrolled and receiving a benefit from the VEBA, you do not need to do anything if you wish to continue the same benefit.

Current participants in the HAP HMO plan will be automatically re-enrolled in the Priority Health HMO coverage at a significant savings to the participant. If you were enrolled in HAP and wish to enroll in the Aetna PPO option or if you want to opt out of the VEBA’s Medicare Advantage coverage entirely, you will need to complete the Open Enrollment form available for download and print below.

If your current benefit is subject to income limitations or Medicare eligibility status, which are identified as:

  • Below Federal Poverty Line in Non-Medicaid Expansion State HRA
  • Non-Medicare Eligible with below $75,000 Household income and on the Public Exchange HRA
  • Over 65, Non-Medicare eligible HRA or
  • If you are new and not currently receiving any benefit

In these cases, you will be required to submit the necessary verification documents available for download and print below.

If you need or want to make benefit or dependent changes for 2018, you must complete the Open Enrollment form. The form must be postmarked no later than November 6th and returned to ABS at:

8220 Irving Road
Sterling Heights, MI 48312
