More Helpful Medicare Part D Plan Finder Tips 

Know the Details of Your Medications

When comparing Medicare Part D plans, be sure to consider the medications you take and how much they cost.  You will need to know the name, dosage, quantity, and frequency for each drug that you take regularly. Because each plan has its own “formulary” or list of covered drugs, you’ll want to make sure that your medications are covered by the plan you choose. 

Check your Eligibility for a Special Needs Plan 

Did you know that prescription drug coverage is automatically included with every Special Needs Plan (SNP)? If you qualify for a SNP, this can provide peace of mind when it comes to your medication costs. To learn more about whether you qualify, please refer to our blog post on SNPs.

Look for Extra Benefits with Medicare Advantage

Some Medicare Advantage plans offer extra benefits that can save you money on additional healthcare costs, such as vision or dental care. These benefits vary from plan to plan, so be sure to compare them when you’re looking at your options.
