Medicare Prescription Drug Program

How Do I Decide Between 20 Different Medicare Part D Plans?

When selecting a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan, it is important to make an educated decision. Research and compare various drug plans utilizing your medication list to select the best coverage for you based on cost, coverage or access.

  • You may elect to go to www.Medicare.gov and enter your drugs into the Medicare Plan Finder to conduct your own research and self-enroll in the Part D plan that best meets your needs. Helpful videos on how to use the online Part D Plan Finder Tool are available on the site.
  • You may call 1-800-Medicare for enrollment assistance by phone.
  • You may call SHIP, the State Health Insurance Assistance Program, for in-person assistance.

Workshops on how to use the Medicare Plan Finder, which are open to the public, will be held at the following locations in 2019:
