Medicare Part D - Overview (2016)

Training materials written and updated by various staff at the Evelyn Frank Legal Resources program since 2005. This outline, updated for the 2016 Part D enrollment period, which is from Oct. 15, 2015 - Dec. 7, 2015, covers the basic design of the Medicare Part D prescription drug benefit, the Extra Help subsidy for low income beneficiaries, how Part D works with other types of drug coverage including EPIC and Medicaid, and how to get Extra Help by using the Medicare Savings Program.  The Outline includes information on how the "donut hole" or coverage gap is being gradually closed so that out-of-pocket expenses during this period will be reduced, for individuals whose drug costs are so high that they fall into the donut hole.
