Welcome to 2015 Enrollment, Pennsylvania Public School Employee Retirement (PSERS), Health Options Program (HOP) Plan Members



Aetna is pleased to offer Pennsylvania Public School Employee Retirement (PSERS) retirees and dependents our health insurance plans in select areas again this year. These plans can provide you and your eligible dependents with comprehensive and affordable medical and prescription drug coverage. Your Aetna plan options vary depending on where you live. Please refer to your HOP personalized statement for plan availability.

PSERS sponsors the Health Options Program (HOP) for their retirees, spouses or surviving spouses, and dependents. HOP is a voluntary program. You decide whether or not to join. HOP is funded by the premiums you pay for your benefits. Private health care insurers, like Aetna, provide your medical coverage and services.
