The Maryland General Assembly passed Senate Bill 946 in the 2019 Session. This bill provides for the following new programs for State retirees eligible for a prescription drug benefit plan under Medicare in the event the outcome of Fitch v. State of Maryland is found in favor of the State. Plaintiffs in that case are asking the court to maintain the State’s current prescription drug benefits available to this group of retirees.
The Department of Budget and Management is providing the following clarifications regarding eligibility requirements for the various prescription drug programs created by Senate Bill 946. Employees may continue to work through December 31, 2019, before retiring in order to be eligible for the Maryland State Retiree Prescription Drug Coverage Program.
