Most Georgia seniors have trouble finding the right Medicare Part D drug plan and this is not a surprise. With over 100 plans to pick from (although that number will shrink) and terms like deductibles, copay's and formulary's it can be confusing to anyone.
Even worse, when you find a plan that covers most or all of your medications, the formulary can change mid-year leaving you without coverage or with less coverage.
The best place to start is at Medicare.gov. Although the site is not always current, and many of the premium rates are incorrect, it is still a decent starting point for most.
How Do I Find a Prescription Drug Plan (PDP)?
Click here to go to Medicare.gov
Scroll down to Prescription Drug Plans – Part D and click
Look for Find Your Medicare Plan, enter your zip code
Click Find Plans
Check off details that apply to you in the box Enter your information
Click Continue to plan results
Enter the name of your drug, then click Find my drug
Repeat for each medication you take.
It isn't perfect but at least it will head you in the right direction.
You can also call 1-800-MEDICARE 24 hours per day, 7 days a week and some federal holidays.
Many people will prefer a more personal touch. In that case, many pharmacy's have staff willing to assist.
