Fraud Alert

If You Have Medicare, You Have Health Insurance

 

If you have Medicare, you have health insurance and do not need to enroll in the new Marketplace plans. In fact, it is against the law for someone who knows that you have Medicare to sell you a Marketplace plan.

 

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently released a fact sheet explaining why the Marketplace does not affect Medicare beneficiaries. It also distinguishes Marketplace Open Enrollment (for people who do not have any insurance) from the annual Medicare Open Enrollment (for Medicare beneficiaries to enroll in Part D drug coverage).
