Medicare Prescription Drug Plans

Medicare prescription drug plans. A simple way to get prescription drug coverage.
Original Medicare Parts A and B doesn't include prescription drug coverage. And you don't automatically get prescription drug coverage when you sign up for Medicare. Some Medicare Advantage plans include prescription drug coverage. But you can also get Part D drug coveragein a standalone Medicare prescription drug plan.

We help make it easier to get prescription drug coverage that may be a good fit for you.
UnitedHealthcare offers prescription drug plans (PDPs) to help you save money from your first prescription fill and give you peace of mind even if your health changes.

All plans include coverage for commonly used generic and brand name prescription drugs, but offer slightly different coverage and drug lists. And you may be able to take advantage of members-only savings by filling your prescriptions at a preferred retail pharmacy.
