    Since Medicare is mandatory primary for ANY group coverage with less than 20 employees, many seniors believe their group sitll covers them until their claims get dened by the company who does not inform them of this until after the fact. One cannot cancel oup coverag until the open enrollment period or a qualifying event such as sepration from the comapny. They pat maybe an enitire years' worth of wasted premium and then, have to fightwith meducare to get a "late enrollment" to get meeicare at all after this,. Tragic.

    I this was in any way confusing to you, that is precisel the poit Thanks for illustraing

      end your coverage, cancel it?  You can not sign up for a new plan until the enrollment period, but you can stop paying anytime.

        group coverage, yu cannot "stop paying it" because it is deducted from yur pay check. if you are tlaking about a consumer policy, temrination by volutary lapse may ,ead to a pre X if you go over 31 days before you get new insruance.  If you have somethng more specific Vera, please feel freeto ask. You can PM me or ask here.
