Beginning January 1, 2015, members currently covered under the Medicare eligible retiree section of the University of Vermont employer group benefit plan will transition to an Employer Group Wrap Plan (EGWP). EGWP is group Medicare Part D coverage administered by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont via the New England Joint Enterprise product, Blue Medicare Rx. There will be no changes to copayments or out-of-pocket maximums; however, the clinical utilization management (prior approval) will now be completed by CVS/Caremark.
