MEDICARE
MEDICARE
Retirees and their spouses who are approaching 65 years of age must apply for Medicare Part A & B benefits. A copy of the Medicare card must be forwarded to the Insurance Department within 30 days after your birth date. However, not all retirees will be eligible for Medicare benefits, in which case the Social Security Administration will issue a letter stating that benefits are denied due to a shortage of quarters. A copy of your denial letter should then be forwarded to the Insurance Department as proof that you did apply for Medicare.

For retirees with MLGW (OAP) Group health coverage who are eligible for Medicare at age 65 or eligible at a younger age due to a qualifying disability, they…
  • should contact the Social Security Administration three (3) months before turning 65 or three (3) months after turning 65 to sign up for Medicare Parts A and B.
  • should not sign up for Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage (Part D).
  • should know that if you’re eligible for Medicare and do not enroll, your MLGW (OAP) Group Health plan will pay benefits as if you were enrolled.
