Prescription Drug Expenses

Prescription Drug Expenses

Prescriptions are so common that more than 91% of individuals over the age of 65 have prescription drug expenses.1 The following options are available to help offset the high costs of prescription medications.

Medicare Part D – Prescription Drug Plans
Prescription Drug Plans are offered by private insurance companies and cover a portion of your prescription drug expenses. Because the medications covered vary by company and plan it's important to review your medications with your representative to be sure you have the most cost-effective plan to fit your needs.

Discount Prescription Drug Card
Some Medicare supplement plans offer a prescription drug discount card as an added-value feature.  These dicount cards offer additional discounts on both brand name and generic prescriptions and are designed for individuals who do not have Medicare Part D coverage. 

Contact your local representative for additional information about a prescription drug plan tailored to your medication needs.
