Suspension of Medigap Policy

Medicare supplement and Medicare select policies must allow Medicare beneficiaries with coverage due to disability the right to suspend their Medigap coverage when they have employer group health plan coverage. This option was created by federal law and is referred to as a Ticket to Work provision. If you are an under age 65 Medicare beneficiary with Medigap coverage and you want to suspend your Medigap policy, you can do so by calling your Medigap insurance company. If you later lose your employer group health plan coverage, you can contact the Medigap insurance company within 90 days of losing your employer coverage and get your Medigap policy back.
