Medicare Part D
If you’re looking for Part D prescription drug coverage, the best place to start is medicare.gov. There you enter your prescriptions and receive a list of the Part D plans that cover your medications and provide the best prices.
The following two documents provide instructions and a checklist of information for you to gather before going to Medicare’s website:
If you prefer assistance, your Everence representative is available to help you find the best Part D plan. (Most representatives charge a fee for this service.)
Medicare Part D provides prescription drug coverage for everyone eligible for Medicare. It’s important to know that:
- If you don’t enroll in a Part D plan when you first become eligible for Medicare, you may enroll during the annual open enrollment period that runs from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7.
- Depending on your circumstances, you may also be eligible to enroll at other times. Your Everence representative can tell you more.
- Participation in Part D is voluntary.
How Part D plans differ
Part D plans differ in the following areas:
- The pharmacies they work with
- The prescriptions they cover
- The copay you pay for each prescription. (Note that some plans use dollar amounts and other plans use a percentage of the total cost. This can make it difficult to compare costs.)
