Do you really need an enhanced Part D Plan?

Most people want the best Part D Plan available. But what constitutes best can vary widely between individuals. You may be thinking that the plan with the lowest premium is the best, but you may give up some valuable benefits… like having all of your drugs covered.

Some people want to get the plan that includes the most medications in case they require some new prescriptions. But this approach could cost you needlessly. The main thing to focus on is making sure that your current medications are included in the plan’s formulary.

If all your medications are included in a basic formulary, an you enroll in an enhanced plan, you could be wasting some money. In this case you may be better off finding a basic plan with a low or $0 deductible. There are many things to consider when choosing a Part D Plan. Be sure you are not paying too much for what you really need.
