Medicare Part D – “Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit”
When you turn 65 you have the option of getting a Prescription Drug Plan from Medicare. We recommend that everyone with a Medicare Supplement should consider one of these programs. Note: if you have a Medicare Advantage Plan, the drug benefit is included with that plan.
While I am not a great fan of governmental computer systems, the online enrollment program for the Medicare Prescription drug plans is superlative.
Thus many agents like ourselves have made the decision not to sell prescription drug plans because this Do-It-Yourself Medicare enrollment system makes it so simple for you to enroll online. This system will allow you to:
- Look at the most competitive plans
- Enroll in a plan that offers the best value for your specific medications
- Verify each year that you have the most cost-effective plan
- Change plans—if you desire—at the annual open enrollment that goes from October 15th to December 7th. When you enroll in a new drug plan, your old plan will automatically be cancelled.
