Warning - Medicaid Auto-Enrollment may jeopardize your other health insurance coverage!
As we noted on other pages, enrolling in a Medicare Part D may mean that you jeopardize existing coverage from your employer's health plan.
Some existing plans will simply "dis-enroll" a person from their existing health plan coverage when they enroll in a Medicare Part D plan.
All Medicare beneficiaries must be aware of this mechanism - however, the possibility of losing existing benefits is extremely important to Medicaid beneficiaries who may be automatically and randomly enrolled into a Medicare Part D plan - thus possibly ending their existing coverage under a previous employer's plan. If you or someone you know is on Medicaid and enrolled in an existing Medical plan - please be sure that the automatically granted Medicare Part D plan does not eliminate another form of coverage - check with your plan administrator or contact Medicaid / CMS for more information.
