Information for RHA Program Participants

Beginning in 2013, DTE Energy changed the way it provides the supplemental Medicare benefit to certain retirees and their spouses or surviving spouses who are 65 years old or older. Once a retiree reaches age 65, the federal Medicare program becomes the retiree’s primary health insurance plan.  Historically, DTE Energy had provided supplemental coverage to Medicare through its group retiree health care plans. Under the new program, once a retiree and his or her spouse or a surviving spouse turns 65, DTE Energy provides each eligible member an allocation in a Retiree Reimbursement Account to purchase Medicare supplement insurance. To assist eligible members in choosing the Medicare supplement insurance coverage that best suits their needs, DTE has partnered with the RHA Program. The RHA Program offers personal attention from licensed RHA Program call center Advocates and provides access to online comparison tools. The RHA Program is provided at no cost to you. You may contact an RHA Advocate by calling 877.591.8905.

  • Fall 2013 Communications

    During the month of October 2013, RHA participants will receive a Fall 2013 Retiree Letter which provides information on the 2013 Medicare Annual Enrollment Period, Moving to Joint Retiree Reimbursement Accounts, and Things You Need to Know about your Retiree Reimbursement Account; a HIPAA Authorization form ( sample HIPAA form); and a Pay Me Back Claim Form.

  • Non-Creditable Coverage Notice

    You recently received a Non-Creditable Coverage Notice from Aon Hewitt stating that the prescription drug coverage you have under the DTE Energy Retiree Reimbursement Account Program ("RRA") is considered to be Non-Creditable Coverage beginning January 1, 2014. This subsequent letter clarifies that if you have already enrolled in a Medicare prescription drug plan, you do not need to take any further action.
  • Aging into the RHA Program

    For retirees who are aging into the RHA Program between July 1, 2014 and December 31, 2014, DTE Energy is hosting meetings to provide basic information about the program. The slide presentation used at the meetings is available for your reference.
