Part D with Other Plans

Medicare Part D is voluntary — an optional program. Its benefits can save you money on your prescription drugs. When deciding if a Part D plan is right for you, it's important to understand how it may affect other benefits you also receive, such as:

  • Medicare Part A and Part B/Medicaid
  • State Pharmaceutical Assistance Program (SPAP)
  • Medigap (Medicare Supplement) policy
  • Employer or retiree group coverage
  • Medicare-approved drug discount card program
  • Non-Medicare-approved drug discount card program

Before enrolling in a Medicare Part D plan, research how it may affect your other coverage plans. Being well-informed about how your other benefits interact with a Part D plan is essential.
