Be Ready for Questions About 2019 Medicare Part D Changes
Changes are coming to Medicare Part D in 2019...and will lead to questions during open enrollment from Oct 15 to Dec 7.
Be aware of what's new in 2019. The annual deductible for most Part D plans will go from $405 to $415. And the coverage gap, or "donut hole," will begin when TOTAL Rx costs reach $3,820...$70 more than 2018.
Most Medicare D patients will pay 25% of the cost for brand-name meds...and 37% of generic costs...while they're in the donut hole in 2019.
