Prescription drug coverage is available to everyone with Medicare and is only available through Private Insurance Companies. Even if you don't take many prescriptions now, you should join a Medicare drug plan.
Just because you take no medications today does not mean it will remain that way tomorrow. If you do not join a Medicare drug plan when you are first eligible, and you don't have other creditable prescription drug coverage, or you don't get Extra Help, you'll likely pay a late enrollment penalty if you join a plan later.
To get Medicare prescription drug coverage:
- Join a Drug Plan or Medicare Advantage Plan (MAPD) run by an insurance company or other company approved by Medicare.
- You must live in the service area of the plan you want to join.
- You are allowed Prescription Drug (Rx) coverage from only one source.
Once you join a plan, you will be responsible for paying the plan premiums, copayments and or coinsurance for your medication. All prescription drug plans follow the same rules but every plan has different costs, formularies (approved drug lists) and pharmacy networks.
Medicare Prescription drug coverage can be very complex and there are actually four phases of drug coverage.
