Many Medicare Part D enrollees don't realize that the $1k per month script they fill for a$35 copay tacks the rest of the retail cost into the running total for their tier in the Part D plan. Many reach the donut hole much sooner than they thought possible. After crunching the math, it is apparent to me that the 3 meds I take that total more than 3k per month can be acquired for 90 days at less than the 30day copays in the donut hole. Careful management and knowing what you are truly paying can give big dividends when you balance part D purchases with imported meds. Judy, CA
