Get the Best Prescription Drug Plan for Your Needs
Many seniors in Florida and Texas take more than one prescription medication.
If you’re not currently taking anything, the chances are high that you may need medication in the future. You can enroll in Medicare Part D during your IEP — the months surrounding your 65th birthday — to help manage the ever-rising costs of prescription drugs.
How You Can Get Medicare Part D
There are two ways to get a Part D plan:
- Join a Medicare Advantage plan that has built-in drug coverage, or
- Enroll in a separate Part D plan.
You can get a stand-alone Part D if you have either Part A or Part B. Every insurance company decides which drugs they’re willing to cover and at what cost — and they provide the information in their formulary. Check to make sure your prescriptions are listed before enrolling in the plan that interests you.
