About Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plans in New Jersey

Some Medicare beneficiaries in New Jersey may not realize that Original Medicare, Part A and Part B, only covers limited prescription drugs in certain situations. If you’d like coverage for your prescription medications, you may want to learn about Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plans.

You have two options for getting Medicare prescription drug coverage. Both of these options are available from private health insurance companies that contract with Medicare to provide this coverage.

  • You can enroll in a stand-alone Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan to work alongside your Original Medicare coverage. You must be enrolled in Medicare Part A and/or Part B, and live within the plan’s service area.
  • You can receive your Medicare benefits through a Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plan. Medicare Advantage plans cover everything that Medicare Part A and Part B cover (except hospice care, which Medicare Part A covers even when you’re enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan). Many of these plans include additional benefits, such as routine vision care, dental care, or fitness programs.

Medicare prescription drug coverage is optional — you don’t have to sign up for it, but if you do sign up, a good time to do so is during your Medicare Initial Enrollment Period (IEP). This is typically the seven-month period surrounding your 65th birthday, or the seven-month period surrounding your 25th month of receiving Social Security or Railroad Retirement Board disability benefits. If you don’t enroll in Medicare Prescription Drug coverage during your IEP, you may face a late-enrollment penalty if you decide to get this coverage later on.
