People With Medicare
What will drugs cost under Medicare Part B?
Medicare pays for most of the costs of drugs given in a doctor's office or treatment center.
Note: You will pay 20% of the cost of your drugs. There is no limit to the total amount you pay. This is why many people with Medicare have Medicare supplemental insurance, called Medigap, or other insurance coverage such as through the Veterans Administration (VA) or Medicaid. The extra insurance helps pay for the costs Medicare Part B does not cover.
What will drugs cost under Medicare Part D?
That will depend on your Medicare Part D drug plan. Your costs can vary by plan and by drug. Learn more about Part D costs.
