In order to help senior citizens better understanding how Medicare Part D works, you have been asked to convert Medicare Part D information into a flowchart. The attached "Understanding the Medicare Part D Donut Hole" contains the most essential information but, because it was published in November of 2010 and then updated in 2014, the cost information needs to be updated for 2018. The cost information includes: (1) deductible, (2) initial coverage limit, and (3) out-of-pocket (OOP) threshold.

  • Read the "Understanding the Medicare Part D Donut Hole" carefully and thoroughly.
  • Use flowchart symbols correctly (6 points). There will be one point penalty for each incorrectly used symbol. No credit will be given if submitted flowchart contains 3 or more incorrect symbols.
  • Present accurate and current information (3 points). The flowchart you submitted should display 2018 cost information. No credit will be given if you submitted a flowchart that contains outdated information. 
  • Concise (1 point). Concise is defined as no redundancy. If you see same sequence of activities repeat several times, you may need to analyze your implementation and see whether you should incorporate a loop into your flowchart.

File Types

The flowchart should be developed using Word, Visio, or Edraw Mindmap. Other file formats will not be accepted.

Edraw Mindmap is a freeware and can be downloaded from
