ROLLING  Medicare Advantage (TRAIL) Enrollment

Beginning January 1, 2021, retired State Employees who will be eligible to enroll in Medicare Parts A and B, will NO LONGER have to wait until the Fall to enroll in the State of Illinois Medicare Advantage (TRAIL) program.

Retirees who will be turning 65 (and are eligible for TRAIL) can expect to receive a letter from CMS approximately 3 months prior to your 65 birthday. The letter will remind you to enroll in Medicare, and to provide the CMS Medicare COB Unit proof of your Medicare registration
