If I become eligible for Medicare prior to the age of 65, will my insurance be terminated?

As a retiree, if you or your covered dependent becomes entitled to Medicare prior to the age of 65, Medicare parts A and B must be obtained to keep group health coverage until you or your affected dependent would have become Medicare eligible by virtue of age. Medicare will become primary and the state group health plan will pay secondary. If parts A and B are not taken when first eligible as a retiree, coverage will be terminated.
