    Hi, I’ve heard that getting Medicare Part D is required at 65, or they will penalize me. Is this true? Anyone else decide to not get Part D? I am healthy and am not on medications, so I’m considering saving my money instead of getting this, but if there is a penalty I will have to rethink this.

    Yes, there is a penalty unless you have other “creditable” prescription drug coverage that covers the same amount Medicare Part D would cover.

    I had the same question. Where can I find how much my penalty would be? If it’s only a small fee I may be worth paying it. If it’s close to the cost of Medicare D then I will just get that.
