You have the opportunity to review and compare Medicare Part D prescription insurance plans every year. Insurance plans can change from year to year, which can mean higher monthly premiums, deductibles and copay amounts, or a change in what drugs the plan will cover. New plans are also added each year, and switching may be a simple way to save on prescription drug costs.

There are a few different times when you have the opportunity to join or switch Medicare plans, including during Open Enrollment from October 15 to December 7 every year.

Compare plans and you may discover:

  • Lower copays
  • Better coverage for patients on dialysis
  • Prescription drug savings
  • Better plans with the same doctors and pharmacies

How to Compare Medicare Plans

Visit, call 1-800-MEDICARE (TTY 1-877-486-2048), or ask your clinic social worker for help. Provide your personal information, including your Medicare Part D card details, the drugs and dosages you take, and the pharmacies you use, and you’ll get a cost comparison personalized for you.

Ask these questions as you’re comparing plans:

  • What is the estimated annual drug cost?
  • Does the plan cover all my drugs without restrictions?
  • Are my doctors and pharmacies in network?
