People With Medicare
Can I drop just the drug coverage and keep the rest of my employer/union health insurance?
- Some employer/union insurance plans do not let you drop just the drug coverage. They make you drop the whole insurance plan. Then you would lose your other health-care coverage for doctor’s visits, etc. You would also lose your drug coverage.
- If you join a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan, you may lose all your employer/union drug coverage. You may not be able to get your employer/union plan back.
- IMPORTANT: If you change your part of the insurance plan, your spouse or dependents may lose their coverage.
You will want to talk with the benefits specialist at your employer or union to learn more about this.
