What Is the 'Donut Hole' in Medicare?

Medicare Part D plans have a gap in coverage referred to as the “donut hole.” Not everyone will enter the donut hole, but, if your total drug costs reach a certain limit, you may. The limit includes what you and Medicare pay for your total drug cost. In 2021, that limit is set at $4,130. When you reach this mark, thereafter, you will be responsible for paying a percentage of your drug costs.
