Got this Part D coverage in May 2017. Rate was ok. Provided the list of medications I was taking and no exception taken. Then the first time I got my blood pressure med refilled they wrote directly to my Dr saying he had to prescribe something different. Like others I found I could get better prices by shopping around and coupons. Then received a note after Dec. 31 that premium was going up almost double. Basically I'm throwing away almost $60 per month for nothing.

This is my second year with the First Health Part D plan. I expected the premium increase and was sufficiently notified but decided to stay with the plan as they were somewhat reasonable with coverage and co pays last year. Big mistake! So now not only do I pay higher monthly premiums, but all the co pays have increased; and some dramatically. An Rx that had a $6 co pay last year now has. $46 co pay. Any new Rx, even if generic, costs at least $23. When I received my monthly statement (required by Medicare) I see my co pays and the "plan pays" section is zero. So why am I paying a monthly premium??? They aren't paying out anything. When I called their "customer service" line asking for an explanation, I get rudeness from a nasty young woman. I can get better cash prices from Good RX without paying a monthly premium. Stay away from this "insurance". You are better off without it.
