Donut Hole, Medicare Prescription Drug

What is Donut Hole, Medicare Prescription Drug?

Donut Hole, Medicare Prescription Drug meaning

Most plans with Medicare prescription drug coverage (Part D) have a coverage gap (called a “donut hole”). This means that after you and your drug plan have spent a certain amount of money for covered drugs, you have to pay all costs out-of-pocket for your prescriptions up to a yearly limit. Once you have spent up to the yearly limit, your coverage gap ends and your drug plan helps pay for covered drugs again.
