Medicare Prescription Drug Plans & Medicare Prescription Coverage
This is one section of The Medicare Project, a series of consumer directories that help seniors
through the maze of Medicare information in the hundreds of pages at government and private websites. Our editors
have chosen these recommendations to help you find answers to questions about Medicare insurance and coverage. This
section focuses on Medicare coverage for prescription drugs.
Web pages and brochures that explain and give help on the issue of the Medicare
drug programs, prescription plans and coverage.
Medicare prescription drug coverage is coverage for brand-name and generic prescriptions drugs. Called "Medicare Part D",
this coverage gives protection for those who have very high drug costs or from unexpected prescription drug bills in the future.
Everyone who has Medicare is eligible for this coverage. You will not be excluded because of your income and resources, health status, or current prescription expenses.
There are special periods in which you must sign-up for this coverage. If you don't sign up when you are first eligible, you may pay a penalty. There are two ways to get a Medicare prescription plan: you can join a Medicare prescription drug plan, which covers prescription help only; or you can join a Medicare Advantage Plan or other Medicare Health Plan that offers drug coverage along with health care coverage.
