Drug Plan Finder
Medicare’s Web site (www.medicare.gov) has a drug plan finder tool that helps beneficiaries sort all the drug plans to select the best option available and also helps individuals enroll. You can obtain this same information by calling Medicare (1-800-633-4227), contacting NC SHIIP (1-855-408-1212), or in Durham, by setting up an appointment with Senior PharmAssist (919-688-4772).
The best plan for you depends on the medications that you take. When comparing plans, note that the pharmacy you choose also affects cost. Make sure your pharmacy is preferred by the plan. If it isn’t preferred, but you would rather stay with your pharmacy than switch, compare the plans that your pharmacy does accept.
For guidance on how to use Medicare’s drug plan finder tool please consult Senior PharmAssist’s Medicare Drug Plan “Cheat Sheet” by clicking 2017 Navigating Medicare.
