How to Join a Medicare Drug Plan
Once you choose a Medicare drug plan, you may be able to join by:
- Enrolling on the plan’s Web site or on www.medicare.gov
- Completing a paper application
- Calling the plan
- Calling 1-800-MEDICARE
When you join a Medicare drug plan, you’ll give your Medicare number and the date your Part A and/or Part B coverage started. This information is on your Medicare card.
Joining a Medicare Drug Plan May Affect Your Medicare Advantage Plan
If your Medicare Advantage Plan includes prescription drug coverage and you join a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan, you’ll be disenrolled from your Medicare Advantage Plan and returned to Original Medicare.
