This is not a medical insurance plan, but it is an option that helps with health care costs.

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.
