What is insurance donoutht hole?

The donut hole or "coverage gap" has to do with the portion of a Medicare prescription drug plan (Medicare Part D) where you become responsible for 100% of the cost of your medication. In 2009, the donut hole is between $2700.00 and $4350.00. These dollar amounts are set by Medicare and not by the individual insurance company. Depending on the plan, some will offer generic only coverage through the gap, others will not offer any coverage through the gap. Read the fine print in the drug plan.
