North Dakota Medicare Part D 2017 Coverage Gap
If you have expensive prescriptions, chances are that you will reach the Medicare coverage gap (aka, donut hole) on your plan. The Affordable Care Act law closes the gap over the new few years, but it’s still with us in 2017. Until it’s gone you’ll need to use good sense to get through the period when your medications are not covered.
Combining a North Dakota Medigap Policy and Part D Plan Benefits
While you’re looking at Medicare Prescription Drug plans, it’s a good idea to shop for supplemental Medicare insurance that will cover some or all of the excess costs not paid by Original Medicare. Even with the new healthcare law reforms, Medicare only covers about 80 percent of the hospital and doctor bills incurred by most seniors in North Dakota, leaving you to handle the rest. A Medigap policy protects you from big bills, giving you peace-of-mind. We make it easy to find the lowest cost policy available in North Dakota with our complete catalog of Medigap policies for seniors living in North Dakota.
