During Medicare Part D’s open enrollment period (mid-October through December), Hy-Vee Pharmacies offer a complimentary medication review and Medicare Part D plan comparison.
Simply make an appointment with your Hy-Vee Pharmacist or stop by during open Medicare enrollment to review your options. We’ll even provide you with a plan comparison based on the medications you’re taking. If you’re not currently a Hy-Vee Pharmacy customer, that’s ok—just bring a list of your medications, and we’ll help you find the best Medicare Part D option.
About Medicare Part D
Medicare is a national health insurance program for people age 65 and older or people with certain disabilities. If you are collecting social security, you will automatically be enrolled in Medicare coverage when you become eligible. However, if you want prescription drug coverage, you can join a separate Medicare Prescription Drug Plan, known as Part D.
If you choose to enroll, you will need to select a private insurance plan that Medicare has approved. There are two ways to do this. One is through a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan, which adds coverage to an existing plan, such as Original Medicare, some Medicare Cost Plans, some Medicare Private Fee-for-Service (PFFS) Plans, and Medicare Medical Savings Account (MSA) Plans. The other is through a Medicare Advantage Plan that covers health services and prescription drugs all in one package. Remember, your Hy-Vee Pharmacist can help you choose the best plan and make sure you’re getting the Medicare benefits you need. For more details on Medicare, visit medicare.gov.
