medicare would become your primary and your exsisting insurance would become your secondary. But talk to your exsisting insurance and ask them how they will work as a secondary. Some secondaries will just follow the rules of the primary. for example: if you use to need a referral from your exsisting and they follow medicare's rules then when you have medicare as your primary you wouldnt need to worry about referrals, because medicare doesnt require referrals.
