Part D: Prescription Drug Coverage

Prescription drug coverage is not included in the original Medicare (Parts A and B) or Medigap supplemental policies. So unless you have this coverage elsewhere—or it’s already included in your Medicare Advantage plan—you may want to think about buying a Medicare Part D policy to help pay for your prescription medications.

The plan you select for Part D coverge may depend on whether the plan includes the types and doses of medications you need (and how these fit with their formulary), how frequently you need them, and what pharmacy you use.
