Medicare Part D: Prescription Drug Plans

Medicare Part D is administered through private insurance companies that offer prescription drug plans (PDPs) and through Medicare Advantage managed care plans that include a Part D drug benefit (MA-PDs). All Part D prescriptions plans must be Medicare-approved. The federal health care reform act of 2010 began a gradual expansion of the Medicare Part D coverage for people with high annual drug costs.
