Part D of Medicare was established in 2003, the same year that Medicare Advantage Plans were developed. Prior to 2003, Prescription drug coverage was not required, but there WERE some Medicare Supplement plans that did include Prescription Drug Coverage. Since 2003, if you decide that Original Medicare (Parts A and B), and a Medicare Supplement are the right coverage for you, then YOU WILL NEED TO PURCHASE A PRESCRIPTION DRUG PLAN AS WELL (Part D)
