Pre-2010 Medicare.gov - Tutorial - Your Personalized Plan List (Plan Overview)
***Archive: Below is the Pre-2010 Medicare.gov Tutorial***
Now we have arrived at the Medicare Part D plan overview page. Here we see three sections. The top section shows five Medicare Part D plans sorted by the Estimated Annual Cost.
If you wish to see 10 or more Part D plans at one time, click on the navigation under the table of five plans. We usually select "All one page" to see every Part D plan at one time. This overview gives us an idea of the cost range of Part D plans.
We also usually leave the table sorted by "Estimated Annual Cost". This provides a good measure of the Part D plans.
In the "My Drugs" area (see below), the user can change dosages when necessary and the system will automatically update the Part D plan ranking.
If the option is chosen to "Add More Drugs", you will be returned to the drug search form — be sure to "uncheck" the "use lower cost generics box" unless you are sure that you want your brand name medications changed to generics. When you have completed adding more drugs, you will again be asked about your pharmacy preferences and then arrive back at this page.
