Recently, a pharmaceutical company inquired regarding one of its employees who is 66 and planning to retire.
The employer offers retiree medical coverage, but it wanted to confirm whether the employee needed to enroll in Medicare Part B.
The employer still has a retiree’s status as “active” because they are receiving retiree medical coverage. For this reason, the employee doesn’t think they need to enroll in Medicare Part B.
Does an employee who is insured under the employer’s plan need to enroll in Medicare Part B?
