  • Review the "formulary" sections of Part D plans and determine whether the medications you take are listed. Check for prior authorization and other provisions that could force you to try other drugs before being approved for the one your physician originally prescribed.
  • Review the plan co-pay for each of your medications. If this is a medication you take frequently, selecting a plan with a lower co-pay for that specific drug could save hundreds of dollars next year.
  • "Don't be short-sighted. Take the time to thoroughly examine your options. Doing this can save money and ensure that you have continued access to the medications that your physicians prescribed," says Osenbaugh.
