Insulating AC unit pipe


Got a question. I've noticed that the piping from my outside AC unit is covered with a foam insulating sleeve inside and outside the house, until it comes to the unit. From there and into the unit it is bare pipe. Would it be beneficial to insulate this pipe and is it OK to do so?
Thanks

Insulating AC unit pipe


Outside the unit, I'd say about 6", within the unit probably a foot.
