 What are your Medicare option in Addition to Medicare Part B?

• Option 1 :: Sign up with Nokia. Management retirees may select the health and prescription drug plans offered by Nokia – a Medicare Advantage PPO plan from United Healthcare that uses a network of providers, with options to use doctors and hospitals out-of-network. (In some areas only an HMO plan will be available). If you choose a Nokia healthcare plan, you must also include the Express Scripts prescription drug plan.

 • Option 2 :: Choose a commercial Medicare Advantage Plan. You can select a commercial Medicare Advantage plan with features similar to the Alcatel-Lucent plan. Alternatively, there are HMO plans with different features and costs.
    
• Option 3 :: Choose a Medicare Supplement insurance plan (Medigap). You can choose to sign up for a Medigap Medicare Supplement plan to help pay many of the costs not covered by Parts A and B of the Original Medicare plan. Be sure to check whether you can apply WITHOUT a penalty for pre-existing conditions. Click to read the Medicare Medigap guide
     
» You may need to consider a commercial Medicare prescription drug plan. If you choose a commercial healthcare plan, you may need to consider signing up for a commercial Prescription Drug plan. See the [Drug Plans] link.
