Signing On To Medicare Part 4: Medicare Part D and Helping Prevent Medicare Fraud
Posted Jul 07 2010 12:00am
For this final part of this series on my personal experiences in signing up for Medicare, I’ll discuss Medicare Part D, which is prescription drug coverage. Medicare Part D is much in the news these days because of a $250 rebate for people who already have the coverage and have reached the dreaded coverage gap, known as the donut hole. Part 1 of this Medicare series addressed getting signed up for the basic Medicare Part A. Part 2 was signing up for Medicare Part B, which carries a premium. The third post is about the supplemental insurance, sometimes called “Medigap,” wanted by many to beef up coverage that Medicare Parts A and B don’t give us. So, now on with Part D, prescription drug coverage.
