Effective July 1, 2018, Empire will be a Medicare Advantage (MA) plan option for Connecticut Teachers’ Retirement Board (TRB).  Empire will provide medical benefits for TRB retirees through a Local Preferred Provider Organization (LPPO) product.  The MA plan offers the same hospital and medical benefits that Medicare covers.  The MA plan also covers additional benefits that Medicare does not such as LiveHealth Online and SilverSneakers. 


TRB retirees will have a customized identification card that includes TRB’s logo.  The prefix on their cards will be ZDX. Providers will follow their normal claim filing procedures for MPI member claims.
