Choosing the Right Medicare Prescription Drug Plan

Part D plans can vary in terms of cost, coverage, and the specific drugs they cover. Plans have a formulary, or list of covered drugs, which is important to review to ensure your medications are covered. Your Main Street Insurance will help you navigate these options to find a plan that aligns with your healthcare and financial needs.

Anyone who is eligible for Medicare Part A and/or enrolled in Part B can join a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan.

You can enroll in a Part D plan when you first become eligible for Medicare and during certain times of the year, such as the Annual Enrollment Period (October 15 to December 7).

Choosing the right Medicare Prescription Drug Plan (Part D) involves considering several factors:

List of Covered Medications: Ensure that the plan covers your current prescription medications. Each plan has a formulary, which is a list of covered drugs.

Costs: Compare costs, including premiums, deductibles, and copayments or coinsurance for your medications.

Pharmacy Network: Check if your preferred pharmacy is in the plan's network, as this can affect your costs and convenience.

Plan Ratings: Look at the plan's star rating, which is based on customer service, member complaints, drug pricing, and patient safety.

Restrictions: Some plans may have restrictions like prior authorization, step therapy, or quantity limits on certain medications. Understanding these can help you choose a plan that best fits your medication needs.
