Where can I purchase prescription drugs if I enroll in Part D?
You will be able to purchase your covered prescription drugs through pharmacy networks established by your plan's provider. You should try to choose a plan that includes your preferred pharmacy in the plan's pharmacy network. If you purchase prescription drugs from a pharmacy that is not in your plan's pharmacy network, then your plan will not help pay for that drug.

This last point is worth emphasizing. Some plans may only provide pharmacy networks in their own region or only in select areas outside their regions. If you frequently travel outside of Wisconsin, you will need to plan your drug purchases carefully because your drug purchases in other states may not be covered. If you are one of these individuals, you may want to check to see if a Medicare Part D plan with national coverage is your best option.
