    Default Article usage

    Which one would be considered correct?:

    "We have updated your record as enrolled into 'the' medical plan"

    "We have updated your record as enrolled into 'a' medical plan"

    Is there an alternate that would be correct?

    Default Re: Article usage

    If there is only one medical plan, then it is "the medical plan" or "our medical plan." If there are several medical plans, then it is "a medical plan."
