Finding a Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan

By Terry Savage on September 27, 2015 | Insurance & Annuities

Hi Terry, A couple of years back, you published the URL of a website that helps consumers find the best (most cost-effective) Part D prescription drug plan for them. You input the drugs you are taking (with dosage), and the website calculates your out-of-pocket costs for each plan that includes your drugs. Unfortunately, I forgot to save the URL. Can you help? Thanks!

Here’s the link to the Part D planfinder tool.  Note that you can either do a general search, or a more specific one by inputting your current prescriptions.)
