Available Medicare Drug Plans In New York Compared By Medicare Insurance Association
"Some eight different insurance companies offer plans that can range significantly in cost and benefits," states Jesse Slome, director of the Association. "A New York senior could pay as little as $7.20 a month to as much as $101-monthly for their drug plan coverage."
The Association director noted that the data was particularly important for seniors with stand-alone Medicare Part D drug coverage. "Individuals have less than a month left to compare their current coverage and switch to a better plan," Slome notes. "Medicare Open Enrollment is the single greatest opportunity for seniors but it ends December 7."
"Monthly premium is just one factor to look at," Slome advises. "The plan you have in 2021 can change how they will cover drugs you currently take in 2022. Or, you have started taking a new drug during this past year and can find far better coverage saving hundreds of dollars in the process." According to the Association only two New York plans scored a four star rating based on multiple factors judged by Medicare. To access more details go to
