Could you be saving more on your prescriptions?  Medicare Part D Open Enrollment is just around the corner.  This is the time of year that you can make changes to your current Medicare prescription drug coverage for 2017. 

It is very important that you review your drug plan every year. Medicare private drug plans can change their costs and the list of drugs that they cover every year.  Most people can only change Medicare drug plans during Fall Open Enrollment which runs from October 15 to December 7 each year.

Even if you are satisfied with your current Medicare coverage, you should check if there is another plan in the area that offers better coverage at a lower price. Look at other Medicare options in your area and compare them with your present coverage to see which plan will best suit your needs in the upcoming year. Research shows that people with Medicare Part D plans could lower their costs by shopping among plans each year. For example, another Part D plan in the area may cover the drugs you take with fewer restrictions and charge you less.

When choosing a Medicare private drug plan, make sure to look at all the costs, not just the premium. Your costs throughout the year will depend on what drugs you take, whether your plan covers them, and whether there are any coverage restrictions. Another plan may have lower copays, cover more of your drugs, have fewer restrictions or offer some coverage during the coverage gap.
