Medicare Part D


Q. I made a mistake by signing up for Medicare Part D. Will I be dropped from my FEHB insurance or can I cancel the other plan before it takes effect?

A. Your FEHB enrollment wouldn’t be affected if you enrolled in Medicare Part D; nor would it be affected if you canceled that coverage. If you decide to drop Part D, you’ll have to call Medicare at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227).
