Am I eligible for the Medicare drug benefit (Part D)?

Section I.b. Medicare Eligibility
Question 3 of 6 (use "Last" or "Next" buttons to see more)

If you are eligible for Medicare coverage, you are also eligible for the Medicare drug benefit (Part D). You must be enrolled in Medicare Part A and/or Part B to enroll in the Medicare drug benefit (Part D).

Medicare drug coverage is only available through private plans. If you have Medicare Part A and/or Part B and you don't have other drug coverage (creditable coverage) should enroll into a Part D plan. You should enroll into a Part D plan even if you do not currently take any prescription drugs. For more information on choosing and enrolling into Medicare prescription drug coverage, please click here.

Note: If you are enrolled in Medicaid and become eligible for the Medicare drug benefit, you must get your drugs covered by a Medicare Part D plan. If you are in Medicaid and do not want the Medicare drug benefit, call your local Medicaid office.
