Choosing a Medicare Part D Prescription Plan

By October 30, 2012

Follow me on:

People with arthritis are typically prescribed medications to control symptoms and progression of the disease. For arthritis patients who have qualified for Medicare benefits, there are Medicare Part D prescription plans available. Open enrollment for Medicare plans started October 15, 2012 and ends on December 7, 2012. What does this mean for you? It's time to review your options, even if you already have a Medicare Part D prescription plan. If you have started new drugs or stopped any that you were taking last year, or if your insurer changed their drug formulary list, you may no longer have the best Medicare Part D plan for you.

Even though it seems confusing, you must review your options each year. Medicare.gov has a plan finder that helps you compare your options. It's worth your time to do it. You could save a lot of money by choosing the right Medicare Part D plan. Learn how to use the plan finder and utilize the information it generates in How to Choose a Medicare Part D Prescription Plan.
