This term pertains to Medicare prescription drugs.

Most plans, with Medicare prescription drug coverage (Part D), have a coverage gap called a "Donut Hole."

This means that after you and your drug plan have spent a certain amount of money for covered drugs, you have to pay all costs out-of-pocket for your prescriptions up to a yearly limit.

This coverage gap can be quite complicated to navigate. Seniors need to have some knowledge of this subject.
