Part D Penalties
Medicare Part D is a bit complicated, and the ways you can be hit with penalties can be confusing. However, the biggest issue you could face with delaying Part D is lack of coverage, especially because you never know when you might need costly medications. Furthermore, you can only sign up for Part D a few times a year. If you fail to sign up during your windows you may experience gaps in coverage for extended periods of time. Don't wait!
