People With Medicare
What happens to my coverage?
If you are turning 65 and you are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid, you will be signed up for a prescription drug plan automatically. You do not need to do anything.
However, Medicare will pick a plan for you at random. So you may want to choose a plan on your own so you can be sure to get a plan that meets your needs.
What should I do?
Call or write the plan that was assigned to you and make sure it will cover the prescription drugs you are taking. If not, you can switch to another plan at any time. You will not have to pay a penalty.
