Medicare Part D Notice Reminder

Posted in Legislative Updates

Employers that provide prescription drug coverage must disclose to plan participants (including COBRA participants) who are eligible for Medicare Part D whether the prescription drug coverage provided under the group health plan is creditable or non-creditable. Employers should send the notices by October 15.

Since it is often difficult for employers to identify all individuals (including dependents) who may be eligible for Medicare, many employers satisfy this requirement by including the notice in enrollment materials or in separate mailings provided to all employees who participate in the plan.
