RIPEA Insurance Trust


RIPEA sponsors a suite of group insurance plans that are offered through the Retired Indiana Public Employees Insurance Trust that was established on December 29, 2000. 

The purpose of the Trust "is to provide individual and group insurance programs through independent, third party insurance companies, for the benefit of those RIPEA members electing to subscribe to such insurance programs."

Medicare, Insurance and More


RIPEA sponsors group health insurance plans for members covered by Medicare. The plans are through Anthem Insurance Company and operate the same way as other supplemental Medicare plans. One of the plans is a comprehensive plan that mirrors Medicare supplemental plan F. The other plan is a G plan. These are excellent insurance plans that cover you anywhere you travel in the United States. They have been negotiated by an experienced insurance consultant retained by RIPEA.
