Prescription Drug Plans

Medicare Prescription Drug Plans (PDP's) are designed to supplement Medicare parts A&B and cover a portion of your prescription drug needs. Many seniors will not need a prescription drug plan.

Do I need a prescription drug plan?

Medigap policies do not include a prescription drug benefit. If you want prescription drug coverage you may want to talk to Medicare about prescription drug plans or visit their prescription drug plan finder.

Many seniors will not need a prescription drug plan. Many times it is less expensive to pay for your medication out of pocket, or use mail order firms like Blue Sky Drugs or Isra Meds. There are also many programs available to provide medications for little or no charge.
