My mother takes a lot of different medications and I was wondering what is not covered by Medicare? I know she has medications for high blood pressure, cholesterol and pain medications but I am not sure what is covered prescription wise. Can anyone help me?

There are a number of different drug coverage plans, and each of them cover certain medications and don't cover others. You'll have to look at all the plans and find the one that covers what your mother needs; try researching plans provided by employers or unions, TRICARE, Department of Veteran's Affairs, the Indian Health Service, or a Medigap policy, depending on what applies to your situation.

Each plan has its own formulary so the covered medications may vary from one to another. If the medication is less commonly used, it may be harder to find coverage. Since you already know the medications, just make sure those particular ones will be covered under any plan chosen.
