Coverage Gap (Donut Hole)

Medicare Part D includes a coverage gap, often called the donut hole. Once you have spent a certain amount on covered drugs, you enter this gap and pay a higher percentage of drug costs.

Once your out-of-pocket expenses reach a threshold, catastrophic coverage begins, significantly reducing your costs for the rest of the year.

The Medicare Information Project can help you navigate this gap and understand how it impacts your expenses in Hillsborough County.

Enrollment Periods

You can enroll in Medicare Part D during specific periods. The Initial Enrollment Period (IEP) starts three months before you turn 65 and lasts seven months.

The Annual Election Period (AEP) runs from October 15 to December 7 each year, allowing you to join, switch, or drop a plan.

If you experience special circumstances, such as moving to a new area in Florida or losing other coverage, you may qualify for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP).

The Medicare Information Project provides guidance on when and how to enroll.
