The MSU medical plan does allow for employees to retain coverage after meeting Medicare eligibility, if actively employed. Retirees who are not Medicare qualifying may choose to continue MSU health insurance coverage until Medicare eligibility is met, however, premiums are unsubsidized by the University.
