We are notifying the members in the following closed plans that their prescription drug coverage will be considered non-creditable in 2017, which is a change from 2016, when their prescription drug coverage was considered creditable. This means that the coverage offered by their plan is not expected to pay out as much as standard Medicare prescription drug coverage pays.
Subscribers will also receive a new bill with an improved format that includes their new subscriber and group numbers and new billing payment address. Their first bill post-migration will be delayed for two to three weeks. Included with their first new bill, there will be a Bill Quick Guide that outlines the changes.
