Medicare: Basics

Quick FAQ

Employer Prescription Coverage: Does it work with Medicare?Medicare requires that every Medicare beneficiary be enrolled in a qualifying Prescription Drug Program. Those would be:

  • Medicare part D (PDP)
  • Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug Program (MAPD)
  • A qualifying Employer or Union Prescription Drug Program.
A qualifying Employer or Union Prescription Drug Program must be as comprehensive in coverage as Medicare part D. If your employer, past employer or Union offer a qualifying Prescription Drug Plan, then you do not have to enroll in Medicare part D. You will not be assessed the late enrollment penalty so long as the plan is in place. You CANNOT go more than 63 days without a Prescription Drug Plan.

If you do you will be assessed the late enrollment penalty when you sign up for Medicare Part D. Once you qualify for Medicare part A you can sign up for Medicare part D during open enrollment periods, which are usually January 1 through February 15 of each year.

Am I Eligible for Medicare?If you are age 65 then you are probably eligible for Medicare. If you have a qualifying disability then you may also qualify for Medicare. For either case, you must be a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident of more than 5 years to qualify for Medicare once you are age 65.

If you do have a qualifying disability or illness and have been disabled for more than 24 months then you should also qualify for Medicare. The enrollment process is usually automatic, but in some cases you must enroll yourself. If you want to qualify for Medicare C or Medicare D you must first be qualified for, and enrolled in Medicare part A and B.
