Part D Deductible

What is the Part D Deductible?

Hi, you may be wondering, what is a Part D Deductible? The Medicare Part D deductible is the amount that a person must pay out-of-pocket before their Medicare Part D prescription drug plan will pay the medication costs. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) sets the Part D deductible, which can vary from year to year.

In 2023, most Medicare Part D plan have a deductible that is $505. So, a person must pay the first $505 of the cost of their medications out of their own pocket, then their Part D plan pays for their medications. Some Medicare Part D plans have a lower deductible, or no deductible at all, but, have higher premiums or other out-of-pocket costs.

Importantly, you should consider the Part D deductible when choosing a Medicare Part D plan because the deductible influence the overall cost of their prescription drug coverage. Also, it is important the Part D deductible only applies to the cost of medications and not to other out-of-pocket costs like copayments and coinsurance.
