    • Here’s what the Summary Plan Description page 38 https://www.mpiphp.org/src/assets/files/yourbenefits/health/MPI_Retiree_SPD_2015.pdf says about enrolling in Medicare:

      Medicare Parts A and B Enrollment

      You will need to contact your local Social Security office within 90 days before your 65th birthday to enroll in Medicare Parts A and B. If you are age 65 or older and have applied for and established your monthly Social Security benefit, you ordinarily do not have to file an additional application for Medicare coverage. Medicare will mail you a card indicating that you have coverage under Parts A and B. You pay Medicare a monthly premium for Part B coverage. Your premiums for Part B coverage are ordinarily deducted from your Social Security benefits, if you receive them.

      It’s important that you enroll in both Medicare Parts A and B because at age 65, if you are not covered as an employee under a group health plan, Medicare will become your primary payer. In other words, your claims will be processed by Medicare first. If Medicare denies payment for a service that the Retiree Plan considers eligible, the Retiree Plan will pay up to its normal benefit amount.

      Medicare will not pay benefits for care received outside the United States.
