There are 17 days remaining in the 2012 open enrollment period for Medicare health plans, and this includes Medicare Part D (Prescription Drug Plans).
Community CCRx PDP (Prescription Drug Plan) is a federal qualified plan that is offered by the following orgainzations that contract directly with the government to offer: Silverscript Insurance Company, and Pennsylvania Life Insurance Company.
There are two stand-alone Community CCRx plans
1) Community CCRx Basic – lower monthly premium (but responsible for $320 deductible)
2) Community CCRx Choice. – higher monthly premium, with no deductible
Both plans offer $0 and $2 co-pays on many popular brand name drugs, and with all Medicare Part D plans, you must continue to pay your Medicare Part B Premium.
The most important thing to understand when selecting a Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan, is whether drugs that you currently have prescriptions for are included in the formulary of the plan you decide to purchase, otherwise they will not be covered.
