How do I enroll in prescription drug coverage?
ou can enroll in Medicare Part D when you enroll in Original Medicare.
This is the three months before you turn 65 and the three months after your 65th birthday.
There is also an annual election period from October 15 through December 7 in which you can enroll or disenroll from any drug plan.
The insurance company with which you have your plan will mail you an Annual Notice of Change each September. This letter will detail all changes coming with your plan so you can decide if you would like to make a change.
If you wish to keep your current coverage, you don’t have to do a thing. It will automatically renew in January.
