Medicare Part D - Prescription Drugs

Medicare Part D is the Prescription Drug benefit of Medicare. A prescription drug plan (PDP) is a stand-alone plan that works together with your Original Medicare. It is only offered through private insurance companies. This is a good option for someone who wants to stay in Original Medicare but add prescription drug coverage. 

Another option to get Part D benefits is to enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan that includes Part D. When you elect Part D coverage, you get an ID card to use at your local pharmacy that shows what your co-pay is for different drugs. Many plans also offer a mail order option for maintenance drugs as well. 

We do not offer every plan available in your area.  Any information we provide is limited to those plans we do offer in your area.  Please contact or 1-800-MEDICARE (24 hours a day/7 days a week, TTY 1-877-486-2048) to get information on all of your options.
