Medicare Part D
Creditable Coverage Notice

Individuals who are entitled to benefits under Medicare Part A and/or are enrolled in Part B are eligible for Part D, Medicare's prescription drug coverage. 


The Medicare Modernization Act (MMA) requires employers whose policies include prescription drug coverage to notify Medicare eligible policyholders if their prescription drug coverage is creditable coverage. Creditable coverage means the coverage is expected to pay on average as much as standard Medicare prescription drug coverage. 


Notice must be provided to all Medicare Part D individuals enrolled, or seeking to enroll, in your plan, including spouses and dependents. Due to the fact that employers may not know which individuals are Part D eligible, many employers distribute the notice to all individuals eligible to enroll in the plan to ensure that all Part D eligible individuals are notified. 


Medicare Part D Notices must be delivered prior to October 15th. 


For your convenience, we have provided a copy of the Medicare Part D Notice. Click here to download the notice for distribution. You will need to pre-fill your contact and company information on the second page of the notice. 

 Medicare's Annual Coordinated Enrollment Period (ACEP) is

October 15th through December 7th.
