Anthem Part D Product Overview:
Prescription medicines part of your everyday health care needs. It’s a smart idea to include drug coverage in your health care plan. When you’re turning 65 and applying for Medicare, you can explore how Medicare Part D covers prescription drugs.
Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) only covers prescription drugs you receive during a hospital stay or if you have outpatient surgery. Private insurers such as Anthem offer Part D plans so you can make sure all your medications are covered.
What does Medicare Part D cover?
Part D is an optional insurance plan you can add to your Part A and Part B Medicare coverage. Medicare Part D, which covers prescription drugs, can help you save money. This is especially true if you’re managing a condition that requires regular medication.
When are you eligible for Medicare Part D?
The first enrollment period for Part D is the Initial Enrollment Period (IEP). That’s the seven-month window that includes:
- Three months before you turn 65
- The month you turn 65
- Three months after you turn 65
During this time, you can apply for Part D coverage along with Medicare Part A and Part B. Even if you are not taking prescription medications, it’s best to enroll in Part D as soon as you’re eligible to avoid penalties. You can still add Part D coverage after your IEP. You can make changes to your plan, including adding coverage, during the Annual Enrollment Period from October 15 to December 7 each year.
