ANSWER: Yes. If you and/or your spouse are eligible to participate in Medicare, this Plan's benefits will be calculated as though benefits under Medicare Part A and Part B have been paid, whether or not you actually enrolled in both Parts. You and your spouse should enroll in both Part A and Part B as soon as you are eligible to do so.
