How Does Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage Work?
After you have joined the Medicare drug plan you want, the plan will mail you membership materials including a plan member card you use when you get your prescriptions filled. When you use the card, you will pay the Copayment , Coinsurance , and/or Deductible , if any.
In Medicare Advantage Plans that include Medicare prescription drug coverage (Part D), your health care and drug usage is coordinated, with an emphasis on preventive care to keep you healthy.
