Before this year, I had drug coverage through my supplemental insurance. I still have the coverage, but it has been moved to Medicare Part D, SilverScript.

Now, I also pay for part D out of my SS check..I pay double because of my income.

I got a letter from Silverscript telling me that I had about $1600 left in my Part D allowance and thereafter I am in the donut hole. I got this letter beginning of June. Since just one of my drugs costs over $900, I will be reaching the donut hole next subscription filled.

My question is...is everyone on Medicare now forced to have Medicare Part D? Or is this something my supplemental insurance decided to do?
