Prescription Drug Plan Finder
The Prescription Drug Plan Finder, available at www.medicare.gov on behalf of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), helps train local partners, such as state health insurance assistance programs, senior centers, faith-based organizations and others who assist beneficiaries in learning more about drug plans.  Medicare beneficiaries can get the same information by calling 1-800-MEDICARE (800-633-4227).
