Medicare

Community pharmacies provide cost-saving medication and pharmacy services to millions of Medicare Part B and D patients. Congress and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) are making changes to the program all the time. This section lists important changes that community pharmacists should know.

As Medicare beneficiaries review their 2020 Medicare Part D choices, you are sure to get an abundance of questions, so be prepared. The Open Election Period, or OEP, for beneficiaries runs October 15- December 7. NCPA has produced resources with specific information for the 2020 year to help you in assisting your patients.
