How to compare Medicare prescription drug plans
Dear Savvy Senior: Is it important to compare Medicare Part D prescription drug plans every year? My pharmacist recommends it, but it’s such a hassle sorting through all those different plans. What can you tell me? — Confused Beneficiary
Dear Confused: Because all Medicare Part D prescription drug plans can change their costs and coverage each calendar year, comparing plans every year during the open enrollment period (which is Oct. 15 to Dec. 7) is still the best way to ensure you don’t miss out on your best deal for 2013, especially if you take a lot of medications.
Here are a few tips and resources that can help you compare plans with the least amount of hassle.
