The State Health Plan mails a Medicare eligibility letter prior to your 65th birthday. The letter asks that you confirm your eligibility for Medicare benefits.

The State Health Plan will be your primary coverage and Medicare will be secondary.

Medicare consists of two parts:

  • Part A: Pays inpatient hospital bills and skilled nursing facility bills. It is normally provided at no charge to those eligible for Medicare.

  • Part B: Pays outpatient hospital, doctor and other professional bills and requires a monthly payment from the person eligible for Medicare.

If you have questions about Medicare enrollment, you may contact Seniors' Health Insurance Information Program​ at 855-408-1212.
