Using the Medicare Coverage Tool: Comparing Medicare Health/Drug Coverage Options
In previous classes within this ten-part series, we have discussed Medicare’s health and drug coverage options. To build upon this further, this class will demo how people with Medicare can compare and evaluate their Medicare health (Part C coverage) and drug (Part D coverage) options and choices based on costs, coverage and convenience. The Medicare Plan Finder Tool on www.Medicare.gov can help people identify the coverage options best for them based on their own circumstances (e.g., where they live, the medications they take, the pharmacies and providers they use, etc.).
