If you drop your employer or union coverage, you may not be able to get it back. You also may not be able to drop your employer or union drug coverage without also dropping your employer or union health (doctor and hospital) coverage. If you drop your employer or union coverage for yourself, you may also have to drop coverage for your spouse and dependents. Contact your benefits administrator before you make any change to your drug coverage.
