MEDICARE PART D ALERT

DO NOT SIGN UP FOR MEDICARE PART D

Companies and organizations sponsoring Medicare prescription drug plans are aggressively conducting massive marketing campaigns seeking to enroll Medicare-eligible beneficiaries, such as you, in other Medicare prescription drug programs. Ignore these advertisements and solicitations!

Proceed with caution, remember the following important information:

  • DO NOT SIGN UP for other Medicare Part D plans.
  • No action is required on your part.
  • You currently have a prescription drug plan through your LACERA-administered medical plan that is as good, if not better than other Medicare Part D plans; you do not need any additional prescription drug insurance.
  • Signing up for another Medicare Part D plan, may jeopardize your LACERA-administered medical plan, and you may not get it back until later!
  • If you wish to keep your LACERA-administered medical coverage, DO NOT ENROLL in other Medicare Part D plans.

If you have any questions, contact the LACERA Retiree Healthcare Division at 800-786-6464, press 1.

A Word of Caution: Do not give out any personal and financial information such as your Medicare ID number or credit card number to anyone. If you suspect any fraudulent activities, contact Medicare at 800-633-4227 or visit www.medicare.gov or SAIC Medicare Drug Integrity Contractor (MEDIC) at 1-877-772-3379.
