Evaluating Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Options:

Why should I join a Medicare Part D Plan?

A Medicare Prescription Drug Plan is an option, not a requirement. You do not have to enroll in Medicare Part D. However, you may want to consider joining a plan even if you currently do not take many prescription drugs, so that you have the coverage you need in the future.

When can I join a Medicare Part D Plan?

The Annual Enrollment Period is October 15 through December 7, 2018. Coverage begins January 1, 2019.

What do Medicare Part D Plans cover?

Each Medicare Prescription Drug Plan has its own list of covered drugs, called a formulary. Drug plans place medications into different “tiers.” A medication in a lower tier will generally cost you less than one in a higher tier. These plans cover outpatient prescription drugs only, and in order to enroll, you must have either Medicare Part A or Part B (or both).

Types of Medicare Coverage:

Prescription Drug Plan (Part D)

  • Covers only outpatient prescription drugs.
  • To enroll, you must have either Medicare Part A or Part B (or both).
  • Medicare Part D premiums are in addition to your Part A (if any) and/or Part B premiums.

Medicare Advantage Plan (Part C) – similar to an HMO or PPO

There are two types:

  1. Medicare Advantage with prescription drug coverage (MA-PD)
  2. Medicare Advantage without prescription drug coverage (MA)

These type of plans combines your Part A (hospitalization) and Part B (doctor visits), usually with benefits like vision or dental. If you have a MA-PD plan, you can also get prescription drug coverage.

You will need to ensure that your medications, pharmacies, doctors and hospitals are included in the plan.

To enroll, you must have both Medicare Part A and Part B.
