Medicare Advantage Part D plans are a good solution for California residents interested in getting prescription drug coverage to go with regular Medicare coverage.

Also known as Prescription Drug Plans or PDPs, Medicare Part D plans are actually private insurance plans that offer medication coverage. Medicare beneficiaries should note that these plans only offer coverage on eligible prescriptions and not all of them.

Medicare Advantage Part D plans are affordable, with the average monthly premium in California coming in at $58.11 for 2013.

If you have Medicare but do not have prescription drug coverage, remember being without coverage for 63 days or longer can result in a penalty fee.

Since Medicare Advantage Part D plans fall under private insurance, their cost and availability can vary. A qualified insurance agent can help you navigate through the available options to find the most cost effect Part D plan to meet your needs.
