Unfortunately, there are no Medicare Part D plans without a donut hole. When a Part D plan is submitted to Medicare for approval, it has to abide by the rules and regulations – which include 3 drug stages, the second of which is the ‘donut hole’. There are however, some Medicare Part D plans in Florida that provide coverage for generics while in the donut hole.
Your Medicare plan may also offer cost-saving benefits that can be worth checking into to help keep more cash in your pocket. Explore some of the following ideas to save money on your prescription drugs:
- Pick a network pharmacy
- Follow the formulary
- Use generics if you can
- Make mail-order your pharmacy choice
You can also save money on your prescription drug costs if you qualify for the Medicare Part D “Extra Help” program, also referred to as Low-Income Subsidy. This program helps people with limited income and resources pay for their Medicare prescription drug plan costs, such as premiums, deductibles, and coinsurance.
