AARP's Medicare Question and Answer Tool

I think I am going to continue to spend a lot on drugs even after the doughnut hole closes. Will there still be catastrophic coverage even after the doughnut hole closes in 2020?

 

En español | Yes, the catastrophic phase of the Part D benefit is permanent to help protect those people facing the greatest outpatient drug costs. In this phase, you will pay about 5 percent of your plan’s negotiated drug costs for the remainder of that year.
