HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.Persons become eligible for Medicare at age 65. Part A is free. And in that regard, you should consider taking that. Part A covers hospitalization.
There is a monthly premium for Part B and that is for medical insurance. I suggest you ask your benefits manager or human resources department how your employer insurance works with Medicare and then confirm this information with the Social Security Administration (SSA) and Medicare. Be aware that when you qualify for Medicare, your employer insurance may start to work differently for you. You will need to figure out whether paying for both types of coverage will be useful in offsetting your health care costs.
Once you discuss it with your HR/benefits manager, you will be able to decide how to proceed.Please let me know if you have other questions in this regard. Keep in mind, I can only answer and provide information for what you ask. I do not know what you need to know, unless you tell me. Please rate positive as this is how I get credit for my time and information.Thank you
I suggest that since he is not yet 65, your insurance is the primary. If you opt in on the Part B, then it will be your Primary and our insurance would be a secondary to pick up where Medicare leaves off IF you have it amended with your employer to make it that way. That is why you need to discuss this with your HR Benefit director
