Medicare Part D, is a prescription drug plan that is offered by insurers and other private companies. It’s a type of insurance that provides coverage for prescription drugs and helps protect Medicare beneficiaries from prescription drug costs.
“Walmart has helped nearly one and a half million seniors and other Medicare beneficiaries save money on their medications so they can ultimately live healthier lives,” Dr. John O. Agwunobi, senior vice president and president of health and wellness for Walmart US, said in a recent company statement about the benefits of Medicare benefits.
Because Medicare Part D plans change every year and the prescriptions they take may also change, health professionals recommend that beneficiaries review the various plans available each year to determine which plan best fits their own prescription needs and financial situation for the coming year.
To become eligible for Medicare Part D, you must enroll anytime from three months before your 65th birthday to three months after the month of your 65th birthday, according to the AARP.
