    The cost for Medicare Prescription Drug coverage (Part D) varies by insurance company. When deciding on a plan, check the annual deductible, premiums, copays and coinsurance to see how much you’ll likely pay. Before choosing a Part D plan, review its formulary (a list of drugs the plan covers) to make sure the drugs you need are covered. There may be additional ways to save, such as using pharmacies in the plan network and a mail order pharmacy that delivers your medications to your door.
