AARP's Medicare Question and Answer Tool

How can I choose the best prescription drug plan for my needs?

En español | First, make a list of the medications you are taking including their dosage, frequency and whether they are brand-name drugs or generics. Consider if you fill all of your prescriptions at one pharmacy, or if you use several. This is important because some of the national Part D plans are offering lower costs for prescriptions filled at “preferred” pharmacies. If your pharmacy does not fall into that “preferred” group, then you may wish to look for a plan that does not use “preferred” pharmacy networks.
