And be extremely diligent about
getting good information about
what specific drugs the Plan D covers. I worked with an elderly cousin in a nursing home to choose hers. It is very easy to pick one that after the fact does not cover entire groups of drugs, or specifically does not cover some that would seem to be no-brainers.
The nursing home was required to assign available D plans in proportion unless otherwise directed by family. So room 1 got plan A, 2 got B, and down the list until you came back to A. The end result was some patients with specific needs got plans with great reviews, but which did not cover their specific illness. It was a college level course in meds. We chose a plan, and in the end, the one she would have been assigned would have been a disaster for her situation.
