Medicare Part D

Medicare’s Prescription Drug Plan (PDP) program – Part D – is optional.

However, if you do not enroll in a PDP when you become eligible, you may be charged a late enrollment penalty if you decide you want this coverage later.

Criteria for joining a Prescription Drug Program are:

  • Must have Part A and Part B coverage
  • Live in the plan service area
  • Live within the United States

Prescription Drug Plan coverage is also available to you as a stand-alone Part D plan, which can be added to your Original Medicare coverage.
