Medicare Prescription Plan

What is a Medicare Prescription Plan and how do I get one?

Medicare Prescription Drug Plans (also known as Medicare Part D and PDPs) are generally highly recommended if you have Medicare and no other creditable prescription drug coverage. To get Medicare Drug coverage, you must join a plan run by an insurance company or other private company approved by Medicare. Each plan can vary in cost and drugs covered. Sometimes a PDP is included in your Medicare Advantage Plan at no additional cost. These plans are called “MA-PDs”.
