Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage

Medicare Covers America Logo The Medicare Modernization Act (MMA) is bringing Prescription Drug Coverage to Medicare beneficiaries. This prescription drug coverage is designed to help you pay for the prescriptions you need, and will be available to all people who qualify for Medicare.

You will be given at least two choices of drug plans in which to enroll, and will be provided with extra help to pay premiums if you qualify. Individuals who want more information about this coverage should click on the documents listed below

If you have questions or need assistance, please contact VDA.

You may also receive help by calling Medicare's toll-free number 1-800-Medicare (1-800-633-4227), or by calling the Virginia Division for the Aging's nationwide toll-free number 1-800-552-3402. (If you have a hearing or speech impairment, use the free Va Relay telephone relay service by dialing 7-1-1.) Ask VDA for free assistance from a Virginia Insurance Counseling and Assistance Program (VICAP) Counselor in your area. Or, visit VDA's Links page for the addresses of additional web resources available to you.
