Orange County, California

Part D is prescription drug coverage that helps pay for medications doctors prescribe for treatment. On January 1, 2006, this coverage became available to everyone with Medicare. Medicare Part D may help lower prescription drug costs and help protect against higher costs in the future. Joining a Medicare prescription drug plan is voluntary, and you pay an additional monthly premium for the coverage. You can wait to enroll in a Medicare Part D plan if you have other prescription drug coverage but if you don’t have Medicare prescription drug coverage, you will pay a penalty if you wait to join later. You will have to pay this penalty for as long as you have Medicare prescription drug coverage.
