If you are a Medicare beneficiary, you should have received a printed version of the Medicare & You Handbook prepared by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS or Medicare) sometime in late September or early October.
Your printed version of the Medicare & You Handbook will contain details on the stand-alone Medicare Part D prescription drug plans and Medicare Advantage plans available in your area (that is, within your county for Medicare Advantage plans or within your state or region for Medicare Part D plans).
The Medicare & You Handbook is also available electronically in a PDF format and you can download it from the Medicare website or on the Q1Medicare.com site at: Q1Medicare.com/PartD-MedicareAndYouCMSGuideToMedicare.php
The electronic Medicare & You Handbooks (english and spanish) that we have available on our Q1Medicare.com
contains the same general Medicare information as your printed Handbook. However, the electronic version naturally does not include specific information on the local or regional Medicare Part D prescription drug plans or Medicare Advantage plans that are available in your area. We also offer a Medicare & You Handbook archive with versions back to 2006.
If you would like to review the coverage details of any stand-alone Medicare Part D prescription drug plan in your area, you can use our PDP-Finder tool found here: PDP-Finder.com/FL
(This link is showing an example of Medicare Part D plans in Florida, but you can change the state to your state.)
You can also review the details of any Medicare Advantage plan (with or without prescription drug coverage) using our MA-Finder tool. Here is an example link of all the Medicare Advantage plans available in Miami-Dade county:
(Again, you can change the ZIP Code to your own ZIP Code.)
