Can I enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan that does not have Part D coverage and also enroll in a Medicare prescription drug plan at the same time?

No, you cannot be enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan (such as BlueCHiP for Medicare) and a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan (PDP) at the same time. If you do enroll in both, you will be disenrolled from your original plan. For example, if you are in a BlueCHiP for Medicare plan (with or without drug coverage) and you enroll in a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan (during a valid enrollment period), you will be disenrolled from your BlueCHiP for Medicare plan.
