Before enrolling in the Medicare Prescription Drug plan, always check the Insurance Company's formulary to make sure that the medications needed are covered. Also, formulary changes from time to time.
The Prescription Drug Plan covers at least two prescription drugs per category.
Medicare Prescription Drug Plan costs
Medicare Part D costs differently each plan, insurance company, and location. It is because Medicare plans set their monthly premiums and expenses. Generally, each Medicare Part D requires a monthly premium. It is separate from Medicare Part A or B's monthly premiums.
