Dropping VZ insurance - can I come back?

Postby Rarin' to go on Thu Jun 28, 2018 10:06 am

Hello:
I am retired from VZ and my wife is retiring this year (she does not work for Verizon). Her medical plan for retirees is a little better than Verizon's. If I choose not to take health care with VZ in October of 2018, am I done with VZ? Will I have a chance to take VZ health care in October of 2019 if I choose?

Also, do I lose the dental insurance if I choose not to take the health care insurance?
Thanks.

Most likely you will lose dental, I did. Got my dental on One Exchange, Met Life.

You can come back, they told me there was a one month hold, but I am nit sure if that applies because of the ACA rules were if you have insurance is is considered bridged and there is no lapse.
