There have been many questions about prescription drug plans (PDPs) lately. Between the CMS Final Rule 2025 and the upcoming Open Enrollment and Annual Election Periods, agents nationwide have reported feeling uneasy. 

To raise awareness about drug plans and what to expect in 2025, we invited experts Bill Hepscher and Marcie Strouse to give an in-depth look at the history of PDPs, best practices for selling PDPs, and what agents need to know.

What are PDPs?

Medicare Part D coverage, commonly called prescription drug plans or PDPs, helps to cover the cost of prescription drugs. Additionally, a PDP may lower beneficiaries' costs and protect them against higher costs. Part D coverage is a separate plan type from Original Medicare, Part A, and Part B.

What is the CMS Final Rule 2025?

Each year, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) launches a final rule, enacting changes that health insurance organizations must follow. Often, these rules include compliance changes. The 2025 rule included changes for commissions, upline partnerships, drug plans, and more.
