State of Delaware Office of Pensions
This document addresses Frequently Asked Questions regarding Medicare, the Highmark Special
Medicfill & CVS Caremark/SilverScript Medicare (Qualified Part D) Prescription Drug Plan (PDP).
IMPORTANT: According to State of Delaware Group Health Insurance Plan (GHIP) Guidelines, the Office of Pensions must receive a copy of the eligible member's Medicare card or Social Security award letter in our office no later than two months before the first of the month in which the eligible member's Medicare Part A and Part B become effective. Failure to supply the Office of Pensions with a copy of the eligible member's Medicare card or Social Security award letter could result in the eligible member's health insurance being sanctioned on the 1st day of eligibility. A sanction reduces the amount that your health care will pay. All claims are covered at 20%, and there is no access to prescription coverage. It is imperative to include the Pension ID on all documentation.
