What is Medicare Part D?
1) Medicare Part D is a program provided by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid
Services to subsidize the costs of prescription drugs for Medicare beneficiaries.
2) You are eligible to enroll in a Medicare Part D Plan during the 7-month
period that starts 3 months before you turn 65, includes the month you
turn 65, and ends 3 months after you turn 65.
2) If you are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid, or are receiving
Extra Help, you can change plans at any point during the year.
3) You can change your Part D Plan during the Open Enrollment period, which
occurs between October 15th and December 7th. The effective date of the plan
will be January 1st of the following year. Also, you can change to a 5-star rated
plan at any point during the year, if you are not currently on a 5-star rated plan.
