Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you today :-
I'm sorry, but you do not receive more money when you go into the "donut hole"
To avoid this situation, purchase a part C plan which has prescription drug coverage. Other than that you are stuck with the additional cost.
I wish I had better news for you
