How Medicare Recipients Can Save on Prescription Drugs

How Medicare Recipients Can Save on Prescription Drugs

By: Frida Villalobos

For those who have medicare, this means lower costs and not having to forgo medication because they cannot afford them. Some of the prescriptions included are those that treat conditions like diabetes heart failure, blood clots, and autoimmune disorders. The benefit also includes $35 per month (or less) for each Medicare-covered insulin product—whether covered under Part D prescription drug coverage or used with a pump and covered under Part B or Medicare Advantage. This is particularly important in black and brown communities who are more likely to suffer from diabetes and experience challenges accessing medication. The act also provides free access to recommended vaccines. These include vaccines to prevent herpes zoster (shingles); tetanus and diphtheria (Td); tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap); hepatitis A; and hepatitis B.
