Prescription Drug Coverage provides insurance coverage for prescription medications
Medicare Part D is the prescription drug plan that is handled through private insurance sectors. This was added in 2006 to give Medicare patients a plan to cover prescription medications. You will select it either separately or as part of your Medicare Part C plan. Depending on where you live, you may have different options for services covered by Medicare. When you enroll in Medicare, you may want to consider adding a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan, or a Medicare Advantage Plan (HMO or PPO) that covers Medicare Part A, Medicare Part B, and often Medicare Part D coverage.
