      I am on oxycodone, oxycotin,Cymbalta, Klonopin,neurotin. They said 20 years ago I had C.I.D.P. No one knew what was happening to me. After all the hell I went thru including dying twice, I am now on all these drugs. My question is will Medicare cover these meds?

      Neither Medicare Part A (hospitalization) nor Medicare Part B (doctors and outpatient) will cover what we think of as standard, get at the drug store prescription (Rx) drugs.

      Unless you already have documented “Credible” Drug coverage you must choose and purchase a Medicare Part D plan. Which drugs are in their formulary (means drug list approved by them for use) and what
      tier Level determine the price and availability.

      Check carefully with the Part D Plan Administrator prior to initiating coverage.

      I used to take some, even all, of those meds. Although never all at once. I quit them all, one by one and haven’t taken any for years. The Part D Plan I have estimates a 90 supply of all of those exceeds $1,000.

      Back to keep your credible coverage or prepare to pony up.
