The U.S. Equal Employment Oppor-tunity Commission (EEOC) is taking a fresh look at age discrimination in retiree health benefit plans.

The commission rescinded its policy that had said employer plans reducing or eliminating coverage on the basis of age or Medicare eligibility violate the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. It says it wants to develop a new policy that won't discourage employers from offering benefits. A "carve-out" plan that deducts the benefits that Medicare provides to retirees is legal, the EEOC says.
