When a retiree or a retiree’s spouse becomes Medicare eligible they will need to submit their Medicare card, which shows they are enrolled into Medicare parts A and B, to Human Resources . At that time, they will be moved off of CDPHP and enrolled into MVP which is a Medicare Advantage Plan (MAPD) This plan includes a creditable prescription coverage to fulfill the Medicare part D requirement. The retiree’s contribution percentage will remain the same once switched over. To help cover the cost of Medicare part B, Saratoga County issues a portion of the premium back to eligible retirees and spouse. This reimbursement is issued quarterly. To be issued this reimbursement please submit a direct deposit form to the Saratoga County Human Resources office.
For more information on MVP see the administered by 2024 MVP Benefit Summary, and the Direct Deposit form.

Open Enrollment for Retirees
For Non-Medicare Subscribers:
During this time, non-Medicare subscribers are allowed to switch between the PPO and the POS plan. Any changes made to your health insurance will take effect on January 1 the following year. If you are interested in changing your current plan, it is imperative that you contact the Human Resources Office to file an application during the open enrollment period. Please keep in mind that CDPHP’s PPO $15 co-pay plan and POS $25 copay plan have a national network. The POS $25 co-pay plan is a managed care plan and requires a primary care physician on file for all members; however, no referrals are required to see specialists. If you wish to review both plans, please visit the “Benefits” tab. If you are satisfied with your current health insurance plan and do not wish to make any changes, no further action is required.
For Medicare Subscribers:
No action is required, all Medicare Subscribers will remain on MVP.
