Medicare’s Web Site and Rx Drug Plan Finder Improved

Last year, many people enrolling in Medicare Part D (Prescription Drug Coverage) found Medicare’s Website difficult to use. Medicare recently updated its Web site, allowing greater comparisons of cost, coverage and participating pharmacies.  The site also allows beneficiaries to sort plans by what kind of coverage the plans provide once beneficiaries have reached the “coverage gap” or “doughnut hole.” Medicare will also be using a five-star rating system to compare plans based on measures such as access to care, quality of care and customer satisfaction.  The newly designed site should be much easier for people to navigate. From the main page, you can find links not only to the Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Finder, but also to the Formulary (Drug) Finder, where you can enter the drugs you use and find the plans in your area whose formularies cover those drugs.  You will also find a link to enroll in a Part D program once you’re ready.
