Medicare Q&A - Should I use a mail order pharmacy for my Part D prescriptions?

What is Medicare-Question
Should I consider using a mail order pharmacy for my prescription medications?

Answer to What is Medicare question
Plans cannot make their members use a mail-order pharmacy.

In some cases, this can be a money-saving option, but in others, it can cost more. The best advice: Check out the projected costs in the Medicare Plan Finder. On the screen titled, “Your Plan Results,” you’ll find a column that summarizes retail and mail order costs. 

Below are two examples.  Using a mail order pharmacy for Plan A would save $79 a year; however, with Plan B, a mail order pharmacy would cost $560 more.
