Medicare Part D Donut Hole (Coverage Gap)
The 2018 Initial Coverage Limit is $3,310. Once you reach the ICL you must pay the next $3752.50 in drug costs. This is the Donut Hole. During this period ALL formulary generics will have a minimum 42% discount and ALL brand drugs will have a minimum 55% discount. On each plan page you can see if the plan offers additional coverage in the gap.
PDP Plans work with Medicare Supplements
Healthcare reform did not changed the coverage you get from Medicare for doctor and medical services in South Carolina. You’re still responsible for paying about 20% of all medically necessary costs. Even a short stay in a South Carolina hospital will cost you thousands of dollars out-of-pocket. That’s why additional coverage is so necessary. It protects you from the potential of financial disaster in the even of an injury or illness. That’s why we have a complete catalog of South Carolina Medicare Supplements. Every plan is compatible with the list Medicare Part D plans you see above.
Most Medicare Advantage Plans Include PDP Benefits
The rising cost of healthcare is the number one reason more seniors than ever are switching to Medicare Advantage. With lower out-of-pocket costs, an annual out-of-pocket cap, and prescription drug benefits (on most plans), it pays to have a look. More than 15-million people made the switch in 2015. Have you compared Medicare Advantage to your Original Medicare benefits? We have a complete catalog with all South Carolina Medicare Advantage plans.
