It depends on your driving style and whether the vehicle was driven after the rear brakes were worn out. If they're damaged or worn, replace them. Many vehicles never need to have the rear drums replaced. Others don't last 100,000 miles.

What kind of rear brakes are in a 1995 mercury sable disc or drum?

The rear brakes should be drums. If you're the original owner and sprung for 4 wheel ABS, they could be discs, but a quick look behind the wheel should help. If you see a shiny surface and a caliper on one side, they're discs. If you don't, they're drums. You should be able to locate parts for them fairly easily. Keep in mind that the Taurus and Sable are the same chassis.
