    Are You Receiving Your Health Insurance Subsidy?

    The Retiree Health Insurance Subsidy (HIS) benefit is available for certain FRS benefit recipients with eligible health insurance coverage (including Medicare and TRICARE). If you are eligible, the benefit would range from a minimum of $30 to a maximum of $150 per month and is determined by multiplying your total years of creditable service at retirement (up to a maximum of 30 years) by $5. To receive the HIS benefit, you must apply for it. The HIS benefit is not health insurance coverage and, unlike your FRS retirement benefit, it is not a guaranteed payment. Future HIS benefit payments depend on the availability of funds and the legislative appropriation authorizing those funds to be spent. If funds are unavailable to pay full benefits in any month, then benefits will be reduced proportional to funds available. In addition, the amount of the HIS benefit could be changed or eliminated by the Florida Legislature. To verify you are receiving the HIS benefit, you may log in to your FRS Online to view your Statement of Retirement Benefit Payments. If you are receiving the HIS benefit payment, your statement will list HIS under the summary of benefits and deductions. Here is the HIS form:  FRS HIS Form for Pension Plan Members
