Medicare Prescription Plan

Part D is the Medicare plan that covers most outpatient prescription drugs. This can be offered through private companies as a stand-alone option or can be included as part of a more comprehensive Medicare plan. Such Medicare plans that include prescription drug coverage are known as Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug (MAPD) plans. With the proper MAPD plan, you don’t need to be concerned with a separate Part D plan.

A Medicare Supplement policy or Medigap policy is private insurance that supplements or helps you pay for some of the costs that Medicare does not pay for. When combined with Medicare, Medicare Supplement Insurance provides a high level of health insurance protection.
