Is AARP MedicareRX Right For You?

The best way to determine if either plan is the right plan for you is to start at www.medicare.gov.  Here you can enter in your drug name, dosage, and frequency.  You will then see a list of companies that cover your drugs at the best possible price based on drug plan premium, copay, and coverage gap.  If a plan has a deductible, but is cheaper over the course of the year then you should choose that plan.  Typically, if you are taking several name brand drugs then the MedicareRX Enhanced plan will probably be better than the MedicareRX Preferred plan.
