What to expect in 2020 for your Medicare (Part D) Drug Benefits

As 2020 approaches, Diabetes Texas wants to make sure that all of our patients are aware of any updates and changes they may experience with their coverage. Below is a downloaded one-sheet guide that explains the Medicare part D benefits. For the upcoming year, patients with Medicare part D, or drug benefits, will have to spend $6,350 out of pocket before catastrophic coverage begins. The coverage gap, aka “The Doughnut Hole” will still remain. We recommend that patients begin to plan now for all your medication needs, samples, and patient assistance needs. Some programs are anticipated to be reduced or to be discontinued.
