How Do You Get Part D?
If you are or about to be in the Medicare eligible market and will not continue receiving your health insurance from your job, you will need a Medicare Part D, also known as a prescription drug plan. As mentioned in my previous article, if you choose a Supplement or Medigap policy you will have to decide on the appropriate Part D plan. These plans have an additional monthly premium ranging from the low teens to about $100, depending on the carrier. More than likely, you will also have monthly drug costs, depending on your coverage and health.
