What Is Medicare Part D?
Medicare Part D is the fourth part of the Medicare program. It oversees the administration of private prescription drug plans sold by approved insurance providers. Through Part D, millions receive their prescription drug coverage.
How To Get Medicare Part D
If you want to acquire a Part D prescription drug plan, you must first be enrolled in Medicare. Once you’ve enrolled, purchase a Part D plan by finding a provider who sells a plan you like. All you need to do is apply, then wait to be accepted. Though, you can only apply during specific enrollment periods.
Who is Eligible for Part D?
People who are 65 or older who are entitled to or already enrolled in Medicare are eligible for Part D prescription drug coverage. Also eligible are people who have received Social Security Disability Insurance for at least 24 months. To negate this waiting period, you must be diagnosed with End-Stage Renal Disease or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.
