Combining Your Coverage With Medicare

Together, the Service Benefit Plan and Medicare can protect you from the high cost of medical care.

Medicare works best with your Service Benefit Plan coverage when Medicare Part A and Part B (also known as Original Medicare) are your primary coverage. That means Medicare pays for your service first, and then we pay our portion. Usually if you’re retired, Medicare is primary. If you’re still actively working, we’re your primary coverage.
