How To Maximize Use Of Medicare Part D

Find Out If There Is Help To Pay For The Insured's Portion Of Costs

If You Have Limited Income And Assets

Find out if you qualify for:

  • Medicaid (which includes drug coverage)
  • The Extra Help Program to help pay for the cost of Medicare Part D coverage.
  • State drug assistance programs (including ADAP if you have HIV)

Look for Insurance Coverage

You cannot purchase separate insurance to fill gaps in Part D coverage. However, there are a few options:

  • Some Medicare Part D plans offer coverage without a donut hole. They tend to be more expensive than other plans but may be worth it if your drugs are expensive.
  • A spouse's insurance.
  • An employer plan that offers a drug plan that coordinates with Medicare Part D. Unlike state assistance programs, any payments an employer makes toward your drugs don't count toward your Catastrophic Limit.
