As a surviving spouse, you may choose to not participate in a CU-offered medical plan. Instead, you may opt to receive the Alternate Medical Payment instead. You can still participate in the CU Health Plan — Premier Dental, but your premiums will be deducted from your AMP.
- You receive a monthly payment from CU for health care-related costs.
- It is available for Medicare-eligible surviving spouses.
- Dependent children do not receive payment.
- The payment is taxable, and a W-2 will be issued.
