FAQ(s) found under  $250 Doughnut Hole Rebate Showing 6 of 26 Prev  |  Next

I reached the Donut Hole in 2009 when enrolled in my Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan. Am I eligible for the $250 rebate recently announced by Medicare?

No. The $250 rebate is based only on your 2010 prescription medication expenditures.  Your 2009 prescription costs do not count toward the $250 rebate.

If you enter the Coverage Gap sometime in 2010, you will automatically receive your $250 rebate check from Medicare.

Also, remember that you do not need to fill out any paperwork to receive your rebate.

Your Medicare Part D plan will notify Medicare when you enter the Coverage Gap (Donut Hole) and Medicare will automatically send you your check.
