Medicare Donut Hole rebate and Plan Changes

If you’ve fallen into the so-called “Medicare Donut Hole”, you should have received a $250 rebate check by now. If you haven’t, call the number associated with your Medicare Advantage Plan or Medicare Part D plan. As a last resort, you may also phone 1-800-Medicare.

Also, you should be getting a 50% discount on your brand-name covered drugs. Check your EOB (explanation of benefits that Medicare sends you through the mail) and/or prescription receipts to make sure you are getting this discount applied.

Please click here to view the Medicare page for information about the coverage gap. You may also want to switch to another plan if you find yourself paying too much in the coverage gap. Next opportunity for most people to switch plans is October 15 – December 7.
