Drug Coverage is Included in Every Peoples Health Plan
All Peoples Health Medicare plans include Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage.
Original Medicare does not include prescription drug coverage. To get it, you need a prescription drug plan such as a Medicare Part D plan. If you don’t get drug coverage when you are first eligible, you may face a penalty if you want to sign up for it later.
Part D plans are available as “stand-alone” plans, not including other Medicare Advantage benefits. Since the introduction of Part D in 2006, the average stand-alone Part D plan premium has increased by some 59 percent — from about $25 per month to about $41 per month.*
With Peoples Health, you don’t have to pay for a separate prescription plan. Part D drug coverage is included in all of our Medicare Advantage plans.
A word of warning: If you are in a Medicare Advantage plan with prescription drug coverage and you sign up for a separate Part D plan, you will be disenrolled from your Medicare Advantage plan.
You cannot be enrolled in two Part D plans at once.
