Q. I am getting ready to enroll in Medicare. I have GEHA High Option Family Plan and was advised to change to GEHA Low Option Family Plan once I am enrolled in Medicare. I have the High Family Option because my spouse is ill and requires frequent medical attention.
A. The only way to know if that would be a good decision for you and your spouse would be to compare the benefits for each level of GEHA coverage and see how they would mesh with Medicare. If your spouse isn’t covered by Medicare, electing the low option might increase your out-of-pocket expenses.
