Companies and organizations sponsoring Medicare prescription drug plans conduct aggressive marketing campaigns seeking to enroll Medicare-eligible beneficiaries, such as you, in other Medicare prescription drug programs.
Ignore these solicitations, and remember the following important information:
- No action is required on your part, despite the sense of urgency these solicitations are trying to create.
- You currently have a prescription drug plan through your LACERA-administered medical plan that is as good as, if not better than, other Medicare Part D plans; you do not need any additional prescription drug insurance.
- Signing up for a non-LACERA Medicare Part D plan could jeopardize your LACERA-administered medical plan, and you may not be able to 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 us.
Notice of Creditable Coverage
Members and survivors currently enrolled in a LACERA-administered medical plan are provided with a Notice of Creditable Coverage (NOCC), an official statement that your LACERA-administered medical plan provides you with prescription drug coverage that is, on average, as good as or better than that offered by the standard Medicare Part D plan on an annual basis.
