The Part D formulary – one piece of information that really counts

Choosing a Part D Plan based on any one of the above criteria alone is foolish. But that’s what thousands of people do each year when they choose a plan based on the monthly premium alone.

The best plan is the one which is the most affordable and will cover all of your required medications. The only way to determine if a plan will cover your medications is to use a Drug Look Up tool or review a plan formulary. Many people prefer to review the plan’s formulary. Not only can you see if your drugs are included but you can see which tier they are placed in as well. A drug is often placed in different tiers by different companies. Choosing not to pay attention could cost you dearly in extra copays or coinsurance.

Once you narrow your list of plans, you can drill down into plan formularies, pharmacy networks and mail order benefits. With 28 Medicare Part D Plans available in Arizona for 2014 you should find one that meets your needs.
