This presentation will cover Medicare and its implications for the management of your employer health plan. Starting with the basics of the four parts of Medicare, who is eligible, and what’s involved in enrollment, it will then delve deeper into how an employee’s Medicare benefits will interact with your medical plan, and how to avoid potential discrimination in your benefit offering. Topics such as interaction with COBRA, Section 125, and a Health Savings Plan will also be discussed, as will spousal Medicare enrollment. Employers will also learn what makes a prescription drug plan creditable, the related employee notice requirements and CMS disclosure, and how CMS matches data to determine whether Medicare or your health plan will be considered primary.
