Like most insurance Part D is a gamble. If you don't need it, you consider yourself lucky to have good health. If you need it due to a condition that requires a costly brand name drug it is a financial lifesaver. I've never used mine either. Only prescription since I went on Medicare three years ago was a one-time generic filled by Wal-Mart for $4. OTOH, I have a friend who requires a brand name drug daily and it saves him quite a bit. It will be more as the donut hole phases out in the next few years. Then there is the friend whose cancer drug was $4,000/month. He would tell you Part D was wonderful. Everyone has to make their own choice based on their financial situation and to some extent how lucky they feel.
