Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version
This page is part of our Guide to Medicare Part D.

Anyone entitled to Medicare Part A (whether actually enrolled or not) or anyone currently enrolled in Medicare Part B (may join to get help paying for prescription drugs). If you qualify for Medicaid, the government automatically enrolls you in a Medicare Part D plan, through which you will receive prescription drug coverage. 

For example, If you have a Medicare card, you are eligible for Part D.
