Do you have a Medicare Part D Plan Finder?

Category: Online Tool Tips
Updated: Sep, 16 2022


Yes.  Our Q1Medicare® Medicare Part D prescription drug Plan Finder or PDP-Finder is an online tool designed to provides basic information on all stand-alone Medicare Part D (PDP) plans in all states and Unites States territories.

To use the PDP Plan Finder, you can start at https://PDP-Finder.com and choose your state (or territory) from the list of state abbreviations and then you can view a list of all Medicare Part D plans in the chosen area.

Here is an example PDP-Finder link to see all stand-alone Medicare Part D plans in Florida, sorted by premiums (and you can change the sort order): https://PDP-Finder.com/Fl.

When viewing the list off all Medicare Part D plans, you can also get a quick overview of important  Medicare Part D drug plan features offered by each Medicare Part D plan.

Medicare Part D plan features will include:
  • the name of the Medicare Part D drug plan (you can click on the name for more coverage and plan details),
  • the drug tiers and the co-payments for each drug tier,
  • initial deductible (if applicable, some plans have a $0 deductible - and many plans will exclude low-costing tiers from the deductible: "Tier 1 and 2 exempt"),
  • monthly plan premiums,
  • whether the Medicare Part D plan qualifies for the state's full Low-Income Subsidy $0 premium
  • the Medicare Part D plan ID (such as: S5884-150),
  • additional Donut Hole or Gap coverage (beyond the standard 75% Donut Hole Discount), and
  • a link ("Browse Formulary") so you can view the plan's formulary or drug list (and you can see the total number of drugs covered by the Medicare Part D plan)

On this same page, the PDP-Finder also shows:
  • the Medicare plan quality "Star" rating information,
  • total number of formulary drugs and whether the plan has preferred pharmacy pricing (showing Rx$ icon),
  • initial coverage limits (the total retail value of your formulary drug purchases before entering the Coverage Gap),
  • special Insulin coverage: some Medicare drug plans will cover insulin at a co-pay of $35 or less, and
  • other plan details (such as plan enrollment) to help in your decision making.

To see more about each plan, you can use the Search Filter at the top of the page to find specific Medicare Part D plans --- or you can change the information shown in the right column of the Medicare Part D plan results.

Use the "Other Options" to see specific plan features or use the "Additional Info" drop-down box in the search form to see other information about each Medicare Part D plan (such as state or regional enrollment).

The "Benefits & Contact Info" button under the Medicare Part D plan name will provide basic enrollment information and the toll-free Member Services number for every Medicare Part D plan.  So, clicking on the Medicare Part D plan name or the icon under the Medicare Part D plan name will show you more information about the specific Medicare Part D prescription drug plan.

Details of a specific Medicare Part D prescription drug plan


We show all Medicare Part D and Medicare Advantage plans in our Plan Finders - even sanctioned plans.

If the Medicare plan is sanctioned by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the plan is not currently accepting enrollment, we will show a darkened-red "sanctioned icon under the plan name with only "Benefit Details".  (Note: this is an older example of a Medicare Advantage plan that is no longer sanctioned - also, CMS sanctions do not affect the coverage of current plan members.)

You can find our Medicare Part D plan finder by just entering PDP-Finder.com.

Do you have a Plan Finder for Medicare Advantage plans?

Yes.  If you wish to see Medicare Advantage plans in your service area (or Zip Code region) (MA, MAPD, MSA, and SNPs), you can use our Medicare Advantage Plan Finder or MA-Finder, located directly at https://MA-Finder.com.  Just begin by choosing your state, then county or enter your Zip Code (here is an example for St. Johns County, Florida: https://MA-Finder.com/32084).

For Medicare Advantage plan healthcare cost-sharing information you can click on the Medicare plan name to see an overview of healthcare (and prescription drug) cost-sharing.

Note:  You may wish to telephone the Medicare plan (using the toll-free number provided on the same page) to confirm or clarify any cost-sharing details that you find unclear.  (For example, "What will I pay if I visit an out-of-network healthcare provider without a referral from my primary care physician?")

The plan deposits money from Medicare into the account. You can use this money to pay for your health care costs, but only Medicare-covered expenses count toward your deductible. The amount deposited is usually less than your deductible amount, so you generally have to pay out-of-pocket before your coverage begins.
