Where can I get my prescriptions filled?

Each Part D plan has a pharmacy network which is a group of pharmacies you can use to fill your prescriptions. A plan’s pharmacy network can include two types of pharmacies – standard and preferred. What you pay for your medicines will depend on the type of pharmacy you choose. Preferred pharmacies agree to charge less for certain prescription drugs. You may use any network pharmacy, but you will typically pay less when you use a preferred retail pharmacy or home delivery.
