Ask the Pharmacist – September 2020
Q: Medicare Part D enrollment is coming up soon. How do I know which is the best plan for me?
Enrolling in a Medicare drug plan can definitely be a confusing and difficult task. Choosing the priorities for drug coverage that matter to you personally is the first step you should consider. Here are a few things often prioritized by people making this decision:
I want specific medications covered.
I need protection from high drug costs.
I like my expenses balanced throughout the year.
I want to be able to choose my pharmacy.
We have recently teamed up with a program called Your Medicare Assistant to make this much smoother and straightforward for our patients. Their agent provides help with enrolling at no cost to the enrollee and with no obligation to choose a specific plan. To get started, call 1-800-488-7804 and they can help find the plan that best fits your needs.
