For those who prefer to use paper forms, that option is still available as a personal enrollment form.

Federal law requires that employers provide a notice to employees about their prescription drug coverage. This notice relates to the Medicare prescription drug benefits (under Part D of Medicare). Specifically, this annual notice must inform Medicare-eligible individuals whether their employer-provided prescription drug coverage is “creditable.” Coverage is considered creditable if its actuarial value equals or exceeds the actuarial value of standard prescription drug coverage under the Medicare prescription drug benefit. This information is important because Medicare Part D imposes late enrollment penalties for Medicare-eligible individuals who do not maintain “creditable coverage” for any period of 63 days or longer and this notice provides employees with the information they need to determine if their employer-provided coverage is adequate to allow them to avoid late enrollment penalties in the future.

Attached below are notices that can be provided to inform employees of the status of their prescription drug coverage. The attached notices are based on model notices issued by the government agency that administers Medicare (“CMS”).
