Humana and Walmart have teamed up to offer seniors a Humana Walmart-Preferred Rx Plan (PDP) with the lowest premium for a Medicare Part-D prescription drug card in the country. The premium is only $18.50 a month. Humana and Walmart can provide momentous savings on your prescription medicine costs. This plan is available to most Medicare beneficiaries, including seniors and people with disabilities. Humana is a stand-alone prescription drug plan with a Medicare contract. Other pharmacies are available in network.
“One of the primary goals of health care reform is to make health coverage more affordable – and that’s what we’re doing with the introduction of this low-cost Medicare Part D plan,” said William Fleming, PharmD, vice president of Humana Pharmacy Solutions. “People are more likely to take the medications prescribed for them when they can afford those medications. And adhering to prescription-drug regimens can enable people to be healthier and prevent future illness. At Humana, we believe that this prevention helps people live healthier lives and achieve lifelong well-being.”
This drug card makes a GREAT addition to an affordable Medicare Supplemental Insurance Policy. Remember if you already have a Medicare Advantage plan, then it will probably already have your Part-D benefits included!
