Eye on 65 showcases creative ways for public sector plan sponsors to keep the promise of retiree health care. Ask public sector employees why they chose a government job, and many will note the expectation of a stable pension and retiree health benefits. But the percentage of public sector retirees who receive these benefits is shrinking.

We’re helping public sector plan sponsors make sense of the options available when it comes to their retiree population’s health care benefits, from Group Medicare Advantage Plans to individual Medicare marketplaces—also known as Medicare exchanges—to health reimbursement arrangements, and how they can manage change and help retirees navigate choice. Tune in with Willis Towers Watson’s John Barkett and Marianne Steger to find out how public sector retiree health care promises can be kept.
