What Is Medicare Part D?
Medicare Part D health insurance is not required. It is a completely optional prescription drug program of the federal government. If you’d like, you can purchase Medicare Part D through our agency. Like other plans, it is a supplement to your Medicare Plan.
Before Medicare Part D was enacted, individuals had to pay for out-of-pocket costs for all prescription drugs not covered by Medicare Part B. Fortunately, the Medicare Modernization Act of 2003 has changed that. Overall, Medicare Part D has saved individuals thousands and thousands of dollars.
How Does Medicare Part D Work?
Medicare Part D is responsible only for prescription medications. It is a private supplemental insurance plan. It requires a monthly premium as well as potential copayments for ordered prescriptions. Copayments vary depending upon the prescriptions’ tiers. Nonetheless, Medicare Part D will cover the majority of these costs.
How Do I Qualify For Medicare Part D?
You are eligible if you are already enrolled in Part A or Part B. You can enroll in Medicare Part D through the policy advisors of Chermol Medicare & Insurance Solutions. You should enroll during your Initial Enrollment Period (IEP), which for most people is just shy of 65 years of age. If you wait, you will incur an enrollment penalty.
Does Medicare Part D Cover All Medications?
Not all medications are covered under Medicare Part D. This is because Medicare Part D does not provide universal coverage. Policy holders may have to file exceptions when certain prescriptions are not covered. Fortunately, our experienced healthcare experts know how to approach this issue.
