Medicare Part D Notice of Creditable (or Non-Creditable) Coverage
In 2003, the Medicare Modernization Act (MMA) was signed into law. Under the MMA, plan sponsors (generally employers) of group health plans providing prescription drug coverage must provide a notice to Medicare Part D eligible individuals. The purpose of the notice is to inform these individuals of the plan’s creditable or non-creditable status, as defined in the MMA, and explain what happens to their coverage and future enrollment rights if they elect Medicare Part D.
