This is my fourth year on Medicare, and First Health Part D Premier was my choice of Part D plans for this year, after three years of SEVERE disappointment in the plans I chose--all of which had "bigger, better-known" names than this plan.
I cannot remember how I found this plan, but I am terribly grateful that I did. With my previous plans, it seemed that by early summer of each year, I entered "the gap" or "fell into the donut hole." For the remainder of the year, I paid atrocious amounts for my prescriptions. Example: Ninety-day supplies of two different prescriptions cost me OVER $600 EACH. This was totally beyond my means, but I was afraid to quit taking these medications, so I sacrificed in other areas to make it work.
This year, my costs have been SO LOW it is hard to believe. We're into September, and from the looks of the statements I receive monthly from First Health, I may not even enter the gap by the end of the year.
I am just DELIGHTED with this plan. I pray that the coverage for the coming year will equal what I had this year, in terms of quality as well as premium.
