This is an estimate of the average amount you might expect to pay each year for your prescription drug coverage. This estimate includes the following costs, as applicable:
- Monthly premiums
- Annual deductible
- Drug copayments/coinsurance
- Drug costs not covered by prescription drug insurance
If you entered your drugs into the Medicare Plan Finder, then this estimate includes the cost of those drugs.
If you selected "I don’t take any drugs," then this amount includes only the cost of the monthly premiums that you would pay for the plan and it does not include any drug costs.
If you selected "I don’t want to add drugs now," then this estimate includes the average drug costs for people with Medicare and may differ depending on your age and health status.
Your expenses may be lower if you have limited income and resources.

Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Programs
offer free services to eligible members of Medicare drug plans. These services help make sure that medications are working to improve their members' health. Members can talk with a pharmacist or other health professional and find out how to get the most benefit from their medications. Members can ask questions about costs, drug reactions, or other problems. Each member gets their own action plan and medication list after the discussion. These can be shared with their doctors or other health care providers. Members who take different medications for more than one health condition may contact their drug plan to see if they're eligible. Humana * Medicare.gov *
