How to find a Medicare Part D prescription drug plan using the Medicare.gov website

To get the lowest possible price on your prescription drugs you must check your Medicare Part D Plan each year during open enrollment.

A few common reasons the prices on your prescription drugs can change each year are:

  • Medicare part D plans can change the prices they charge for specific drugs each year
  • The classification or tier of prescription drugs can change
  • Drugs can become generic and less expensive alternatives can become available

 

Part D plans are on a yearly contract they begin each year on January 1st and end a year later on December 31st.  The Florida open enrollment period for Medicare part D starts October 15 and ends November 7; this is the time you must choose your part D program for the following year. 

 
How do you check and see what Medicare part D plan will be of the best value for you?  The answer is you must go to the Medicare.gov website, enter your information, and see which plan will be the best for you.
