Medicare Prescription Drug (Part D) Plans from UnitedHealthcare
UnitedHealthcare has a Medicare Part D plan to fit a variety of budget and prescription needs.
Original Medicare Parts A and B don't include prescription drug coverage. A Medicare Prescription Drug (Part D) plan can help cover the costs of your medication. AARP MedicareRx plans, offered through UnitedHealthcare, can help you save money on your prescription drugs and give you peace of mind—even if your health changes. Plans include commonly used generic and brand name prescription drugs, but each plan has slightly different coverage and drug lists.
Prescription Drug Coverage Options
Prescription drugs are not covered by Original Medicare. Once you’ve enrolled in Medicare, there are two main ways to get prescription drug coverage:
Medicare Prescription Drug (Part D) Plans
You can purchase a standalone Medicare Prescription Drug (Part D) plan to help pay for your prescription drug costs if you have Original Medicare and/or a Medicare Supplement insurance plan.
Medicare Advantage (Part C) Plans
Most Medicare Advantage (Part C) plans from UnitedHealthcare include prescription drug coverage. And all Special Needs Plans, a type of Medicare Advantage plan, will include prescription drug coverage.

Get More health care coverage with a Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plan.
If you're looking for more complete coverage than a standalone Part D (PDP) plan, you may want to consider an all-in-one Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug (MAPD) plan to combine your doctor, hospital and prescription drug coverage. These plans may provide better prescription drug coverage than a Part D plan, and offer even more benefits than Original Medicare. UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plans may include:
- Low-cost premiums, many as low as $0
- Set copays and yearly limits to out-of-pocket spending
- Prescription drug coverage for thousands of brand name and generic drugs
- Drug copays as low as $0 with home delivery from OptumRx®1
