Medicare Drug Coverage Gap/“Donut Hole”


This is a voluntary medication benefit program that started in 2006. Participants with a standard plan have 75 percent of their drug costs covered until they reach a cost of $2,830. Any expense higher than this is paid out of pocket until the cost reaches $4,550. Once costs reach this amount, 95 percent of costs are covered by Medicare.
