Why am I getting notices asking if Medicare is my primary insurance?

I don't have any other type of insurance in addition to the Original Medicare Plan. Why do I keep getting notices asking whether or not Medicare is my primary insurance plan?

Medicare does not automatically know if you have other insurance coverage. Medicare sends you an Initial Enrollment Questionnaire about three months before you are eligible for Medicare. This questionnaire will ask you if you have and plan to keep your group health insurance through your work or that of a family member. Your answers to this questionnaire are used to help Medicare set up your file, and make sure that your claims are paid by the right insurance.
