mapMEDICARE OVERVIEW

We frequently receive questions regarding what actions employees should take when they turn 65.  We've put together information for you from medicare.gov. However, please talk to a certified Medicare advisor as Marvell is not certified expert and the following information should not be construed as legal advice.

Please visit medicare.gov > Medicare Handbook and Should I get Parts A & B?

Please send a request to Marvell to complete the Application for Enrollment in Medicare Part B (Form CMS 40B). Employees can submit an HR case. Non-Employees can email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

If you are an active employee enrolled in Marvell's medical insurance when you turn 65:

  • Marvell's medical plans for active employees qualify as a group health plan as defined by the IRS.
  • You may be able to delay enrollment in Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Part B (Medical Insurance) without a lifetime late enrollment penalty if you choose to enroll later.
  • However, there are exceptions; please check if you are eligible for Premium-free Part A, which would require you to enroll when you are first eligible.
  • Note: If you are enrolled in Marvell's Anthem HDHP with HSA and enrolled in Medicare Parts A and/or B, you may be ineligible to participate in Marvell's HSA (both in employee contributions and receiving employer funding). Please contact a Medicare advisor for further clarification on limitations to participating in an HSA.

If you are an active employee enrolled in Marvell's medical insurance age 65 or over when you leave Marvell and lose Marvell's medical insurance coverage:

  • You have 8 months to sign up for Part B without a penalty, whether or not you choose to enroll in Marvell's COBRA. 
  • COBRA does not qualify as a group health plan as defined by the IRS.  

If you are a terminated employee enrolled in a Marvell medical plan through COBRA when you turn 65:

  • COBRA does not qualify as a group health plan as defined by the IRS.  
  • You likely need to enroll in Part A  and Part B when you're first eligible in order to prevent incurring lifetime penalties and a gap in Medicare coverage.
