Medicare Part D Prescription Drug plans
Why is Medicare Part D important?
Medicare Parts A & B, or Original Medicare, cover drugs administered during hospital or doctor visits but not medications you are prescribed to take after those visits have concluded. Many people who qualify for Medicare Parts A & B choose to supplement that coverage with a Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage plan.
What does Medicare Part D cover?
Medicare Part D plans offer coverage for common generic and brand name prescription drugs, with the government setting guidelines for what medications Medicare Part D plans must cover. However, the prescription drugs covered do vary from plan to plan. Be sure to verify that your prescriptions are covered in each plan’s list of covered medications.
