I have been on permanent disability from long time but I have always been covered under my spouse's work health insurance. so I have PART A. I never took any PART B or D. My question is, Can you enroll in PART B and still keep both insurances. AND is Medicare is sufficient alone to cover all lupus medicine, unpredictable test and specialist etc...
If you have to choose between Medicare and employer provided coverage which one would you choose?

Great question, but a situation I'm not readily familiar with. In the event no one on the forum can answer, I would ask your insurance company/broker/agent about it.

With Medicare, there are a lot of limitations from what I understand. Please research thoroughly before making a decision. You've brought up a very improtant question. I'll ask my in-laws and parents about it so I'm aware of the pros and cons.
