Medex Open Enrollment is in November for January coverage.

Retirees and their spouses who are turning 65 are required to enroll in Medicare Part A & B and switch to Medex (our Medicare supplemental plan), effective on the first day of the month that they turn 65. Please contact Social Security ( to enroll in Medicare.The Medex plan includes prescription drug coverage, so enrollment in Medicare Part D is unnecessary.
