Medicare prescription drug coverage (Part D) is available to everyone with Medicare Part A and/or Part B. Part D adds drug coverage to your Medicare program. It helps to lower prescription drug costs and protect you from higher costs in the future. It covers both brand name and generic prescription drugs at participating pharmacies in your area. You should consider joining a plan unless you will already have drug coverage that is at least as good as Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage.
Most people pay a monthly premium for this coverage. To get Medicare drug coverage, you must join a Medicare drug plan. Plans vary in cost and drugs covered. To compare plans go to www.medicare.gov.
It is important to investigate your options now. If you wait, you may have to pay more for your coverage later.
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont, in a joint venture with several other New England Blue plans, partners with the federal government to offer Medicare Prescription Drug coverage, Blue MedicareRx.
You now have the convenience and added security of having your Medicare prescription drug coverage through the same company you already know and trust for your health care coverage.
