||$0 drug deductible
|Aetna Medicare Standard Plan (HMO)

Make sure any new plan includes your doctor in the network, so call your doctor to make sure he/she will take the plan.
If you are eligible for Extra Help, you may get some help with part of your premium. For the Aetna Standard, it could be $14.00 and for the premier plan it could be $32.00.
