Immediate Action Required - Medicare Part D
If you provide prescription drug benefits to active employees or retirees, you likely have to comply with certain requirements of Medicare Part D, and there are important dates fast approaching!
Notice - November 15, 2005
Employers that offer prescription drug benefits to active employees, retirees and/or their dependents must provide a Notice of Creditable Coverage or a Notice of Non-Creditable Coverage to all Medicare-eligible individuals prior to November 15, 2005. We recommend that you provide this notice to all active employees and retirees, because you may not know which individuals (employees, retirees and/or their dependents) are eligible for Medicare. The notice will help individuals to determine whether or not to enroll in Medicare Part D's prescription drug benefit beginning on November 15, 2005.
