Which DM meds wouldn't be covered by Medicare part D?



actually, it depends how you defined covered ..

Medicare D has this thing called a "coverage gap" ..
Meds are covered until a certain amount has been 'spent'
then they're not covered until another amount has heen spent,
then they're covered again
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medicare_Part_D_coverage_gap

[eg, *i* ,NOT healthy, average about $540 /month on Meds ]


( and depends on the plan ..some plans just don't cover some Meds)
