How to get drug coverage?

Medicare beneficiaries can obtain prescription drug coverage by enrolling in a Medicare stand alone prescription drug plan (Part D) or by enrolling in a Medicare Advantage plan (Part C) with a drug component.

Enrollment in 2016

In 2016, 495,635 enrolled in a Stand Alone Maryland Prescription Drug Plan and 81,155 enrolled in an Maryland Medicare Advantage Plan with prescription drug coverage.

Costs for Medicare drug coverage

Medicare drug plans cover a portion of all covered prescription drug costs after the enrollee has paid their annual drug deductible. However an enrollee’s actual drug costs will depend on their drug plan’s cost-sharing requirements for each drug tier, whether they use a preferred pharmacy in the plan’s network, whether their drugs are listed in the plan’s formulary (and if so, the tier in which the drugs are listed), and whether the enrollee is eligible for income-based subsidies.
