If the choice of pharmacies is important to you, or particularly if transportation is an issue, you should make sure to pick a plan that will allow you to use the pharmacies you prefer. If you regularly spend part of the year in another state, you should consider enrolling in a national drug plan that includes pharmacies across the nation. Many plans also offer mail order services.
