Important Notice from Syracuse City School District About Your Prescription Drug Coverage and Medicare
Each year, the Center for Medicare Services requires the Syracuse City School District to provide to all enrollees of the District's prescription drug plan a Notice of Creditable Coverage.  The school district's prescription drug plan exceeds the coverage provided by a standard Medicare Part D prescription drug plan.  Therefore, you do not need to enroll in a separate Part D plan.  This notice is only pertinent to members, or their dependents, that are eligible for Medicare and are not enrolled in Medicare and are not enrolled in Medicare Part D drug plan.  

*If not one is eligible for Medicare in your household, you may disregard this notice.
