Medicare's Employer Coverage

NavSav is Your Resource for Understanding

For those who are already employed by a company offering group coverage and are either 65 or approaching that age, both Medicare and Employer Coverage are accessible options. In this scenario, it’s prudent to evaluate the expenses of:

  1. Coordinating Medicare with Employer coverage.
  2. Utilizing Medicare as your primary insurance.

Your best choice will depend on your unique circumstances. Acting promptly is key, as it can help you avoid Medicare late enrollment penalties.The rules differ based upon the size of the company you work for.

Medicare Primary or Secondary?
What's the difference?

Primary Coverage

Medicare is a primary payer, in case you work for a company with less than 20 employees. Therefore, you will need to be enrolled in both Parts A & B. Never take a chance on Medicare Part B even if your insurance carrier claims they will cover it.

Secondary Coverage

You would have Medicare as a Secondary Payer if you work for a company with more than 20 employees. That’s because your employer insurance will be the primary payer. Since Medicare Part A usually costs nothing, it makes sense to have this extra protection as it may limit your exposure on a hospital stay to an amount less than your deductible.
