Why am I receiving this notice?
The Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act (also called the Medicare Modernization Act or MMA) is a federal law enacted in 2003. The MMA requires entities whose health policies include prescription drug coverage to notify Medicare eligible policyholders whether their prescription drug coverage is creditable coverage. The MMA defines credible coverage as coverage that is expected to pay on average as much as the standard Medicare prescription drug coverage.
