Tips To Get The Best Part D Plan

Don’t choose a Medicare Part D plan solely based on the monthly premium cost and the deductible amount.  It is critical that you verify that the medications you take are covered.  In the old days this took a lot of research.

Today it really is simple.  If you work with a local Medicare insurance agent, ask them if they are willing to help you.

What Are Examples of Medicare Part D Premium Costs

The Association does not like to publish rates online.  Because while the rates shown are current in 2022, you may be looking at this page in 2023 or later.  That’s why we recommend using the online comparison tool to get the latest rates.

But, here are some examples to show the range of monthly premiums.  As you can see, companies may offer more than one drug plan.  The plan that’s best for you, may not be best for someone else.  Compare!

Find New York Medicare Insurance Agents

Comparing Medicare drug plans is something you can do yourself.  The same is not true for your Medicare options.  While Medicare is a national program, the plan options are very local.

The millions of dollars spent on television ads are designed to get you to call a toll-free number.  You will be connected with a Call Center.  Their agents can be extremely knowledgeable.  But they likely will not be located in your area.

That’s why we believe it is worth finding a local Medicare insurance agent.  He or she should know which plans other seniors in your area like. And, they’ll know which people don’t like.

Click on the link and access the Association’s directory of New York Medicare Agents.  Once again, it is 100% free to use. And, more important, it’s 100% private. Enter NO personal data or information to see the listing.
