My pharmacy is no longer listed as Preferred. Can you assist with a new coverage?

Adam, it’s that time of year again to look at my Medicare (Part D) Prescription plan. I just got a letter stating that my pharmacy will no longer be in-network. Do I have to change my pharmacy?
Yes, it is that time of year again, the Annual Enrollment Period for Part D plans. Unfortunately, a lot of smaller pharmacies are being dropped as Preferred pharmacies and instead of being classified as Standard pharmacies. But when we review your coverage we can compare your medication prices at a number of different pharmacies. In some cases, the price difference between a large national pharmacy and those of a smaller “Mom and Pop type” pharmacy may only be a few dollars. Another option that we can look at is that of having your prescriptions mailed directly to you. These are done in 3 month installments and some companies offer significant savings for doing it this way.
