The five prescription drug tiers:
Medicare has its own rules on late and missed payments, but it is ultimately up to an individual’s plan on how to proceed with late payments.
According to the rules set by the Medicare program, if an individual is late in paying a premium, they can still receive coverage without a penalty. They are also granted a grace period along with warnings and notifications about the late or missed payments. Medicare will send the beneficiary a letter by mail instructing them to contact their plan’s carrier about the payment.
No matter the carrier, individuals must be notified before the carrier drops them from the plan. Grace periods must be allowed for a minimum of two months, but some plans offer an extended grace period. The grace period will begin on the first day after the payment is due.
Plans with a Single Grace Period may disenroll individuals who miss one or more premium payments during that grace period. The individual will be dropped from coverage at the end of the timeframe that was allotted.
Plans that have a Rollover Grace Period allow their members to stay enrolled if they owe more than one month’s premium but pay for at least one premium during the grace period. If this occurs, a new grace period will begin. However, if no payment is made, the carrier may disenroll the individual from the plan.
Insurance companies will send notifications to members who have failed to pay their premiums but will disenroll any member who fails to make a payment during the grace period.
Once an individual has been disenrolled from a plan, they will have to submit an application for coverage.
