As required by law, retired members or their dependents who qualify for state-paid, post-retirement medical benefits and are eligible for Medicare must enroll in both Parts A and B of Medicare. Medicare Part A is paid for while actively employed while Part B is paid for during retirement, usually through a deduction in the benefit recipient’s Social Security check. State law requires the School Employees’ Health Benefits Program (SEHBP) to reimburse these eligible retirees and their dependents for the cost of enrolling in Medicare Part B.
