Retiree Health Solutions

Willis Towers Watson’s Individual Marketplace, Via Benefits can help your retiring employees transition from a group health plan to an individual health insurance plan that best fits their needs and budget.

Honor your commitment to retirees

Via Benefits for Medicare-Eligible Retirees enables employers and plan sponsors to honor their promise to Medicare-eligible retirees while reducing their costs (including OPEB liabilities) and administrative burden. Retirees can select a health care plan from a wide array of affordable options that not only fit their medical and financial needs but also typically allow them to obtain equal or better benefits than they currently have at a lower cost.

Via Benefits for Pre-Medicare Retirees helps employers, plan sponsors and retirees maximize value through the public and private marketplace via our high-touch concierge service platform. As a web-enabled broker, we partner with organizations to help pre-Medicare retirees find health care coverage that fits their specific needs and budget.
