Creditable coverage is important because any pre-existing condition exclusion period contained in a group health plan offered by your employer would be required to be reduced by your creditable coverage. Creditable coverage includes coverage under a group health plan, Medicare, Medicaid, and other types of health coverages including a public health plan.
