Q. I am a Postal Service retiree (CSRS) with the Blue Cross self-and-family high option. My spouse turns 65 in January. Can I continue to carry him on my plan and use it as supplemental insurance? Does he have to elect Medicare Part B, or can he just have Part A and still be covered under my insurance?
A. He can continue to be covered as long as you are enrolled in the self-and-family option of your plan. That would be true whether or not he was enrolled in Medicare Part B.
