Open enrollment is now, are you covered? Let Parafill help.

Tis the season, Medicare open enrollment is here again. I often get questions from patients around this time of year who are feeling lost when it comes to finding the right drug coverage for them. I want to provide a simple outline for how to approach open enrollment so that you can find the best coverage for you and tell you how my pharmacy Parafill can help.

Start by asking yourself a couple important questions:

Have I started any new medications this year?

Were any of my copays much higher than the others?

While I encourage every individual on Medicare to check every year to see if their plan is the best one for them, if you answered yes to either of those questions, it is critically important that you check. Different Medicare Part D plans (prescription drug plans) cover medications at different pricing tiers. So, a medication that costs you $3.60 on one plan, could cost you over $50 on another. It is important that you shop around, but how?

Medicare provides a couple tools that you can use to find a plan that is right for you. You can do this online at Medicare’s website or over the phone. The Plan Finder will help you find the lowest cost plans (drugs + premium) for your specific circumstance. My pharmacy Parafill, located here in Beachwood, is also here to help. We offer a free Medicare Part D consultation to any patient of our pharmacy. We will find plans based on your medications and circumstance. Then, we will deliver those medications to your door, for free! 

It can seem like a daunting process, let us help.
