Medicare Part D Rx Drug Coverage
Medicare Supplement policies don’t include Rx drug coverage. Rx drug coverage also known as Part D Medicare, is a stand-alone drug plan that can be purchased from any carrier that offers it. Globe Life no longer offers their own Part D Rx drug plan. We recommend our clients consider purchasing an Rx plan directly from Silver Script (available thru Aetna Medicare Solutions) at 1-855-335-1407 or enroll via their website.
Silverscript is a good company but whether or not their plans are the best for you depends upon the medication you are taking.
Important Note: Individuals who do not enroll in a Medicare Part D Rx drug plan upon turning age 65 may be subject to late enrollment penalty fees “higher premium” if enrolling at a later date.
