It depends . You may be able to qualify for ADAP if you lose medicaid and that will help you while you are in the doughnut hole before your part d kicks in. Google your states ADAP program and see what the income limit is . It anything under 50 K a year where I live, maybe a little more  .

Go to http:// www.medicare.gov; Make sure it says "Official Government Website for Medicare".

Under the first tab (sign up/change plans), click on "Find Health And Drug Plans". Under “General Search” near the top; type in your zip code and follow the steps 1 through 4.  You should see an estimated cost for your drugs for different plans. 

The estimated annual drug cost includes the premium, deductible if there is one, any co-pays and coinsurance, and any non covered drugs.
