If you have Federal Employee Health Benefits (FEHB), you are eligible to enroll in Medicare if you are 65 years of age or older. You can have both FEHB and Medicare coverage at the same time.
If you are eligible for premium-free Medicare Part A, you can sign up for it even if you are still working. Part A will provide you with coverage for inpatient expenses in addition to your FEHB.
If you enroll in Medicare Part B, you may get access to additional medical benefits that FEHB does not cover.
In the 30 days before you are eligible for Medicare, you can make a one-time change to your FEHB plan. If you decide to suspend your FEHB coverage, be sure to provide documentation to your retirement system. It will give you the option to re-enroll in FEHB if you lose or cancel your Medicare coverage.
Looking at the costs and benefits of Medicare and FEHB will help you make the right decision for your health care coverage.
It is very important to make an informed decision about your Medicare eligibility and enrollment. Contact your retirement system to get the information you need to make the best decision for your circumstances.
Or, you can enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan to get Part A and Part B bundled together. Most Medicare Advantage plans also include Part D prescription drug coverage and other health care benefits like hearing, vision and dental.
