LACERS Medical Premium Reimbursement Program (MPRP) is intended for use by retirees who live outside of the coverage areas of LACERS-sponsored medical plans, or outside California but within the United States and its territories.
Under this program, LACERS may reimburse a retiree up to the amount of the retiree’s monthly medical subsidy for medical premiums they pay out-of-pocket to a federally-qualified HMO or State-regulated non-LACERS medical plan. If the medical plan does not include vision insurance or Medicare Part D (prescription coverage), the retiree may also be reimbursed for these.
Any Member who receives a rebate due to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act for any portion of his/her medical plan premium that was reimbursed by LACERS under the MPRP is required to report the rebate to LACERS and provide documentation as to the amount that was reimbursed.
