AARP's Medicare Question and Answer Tool

Is it just prescription drug costs that count toward reaching the doughnut hole or all medical costs?

 

En español | Just the amount you and your Part D plan have paid for your outpatient prescription drugs determines when you reach the coverage gap. It does not count all your medical costs, nor costs spent on over-the-counter drugs, vitamins and supplements. Premiums also don’t count.
