@A myHIVteam Member, I checked out the site you mentioned but it's there to just sell one Medicare Advantage plans as a replacement to Medicare, not supplemental Part-D plans. Really appreciate your assistance though 😛
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Medicare drug plans must relax their “refill-too-soon” policy. Plans must let you get up to a 90-day supply in one fill unless quantities are more limited for safety reasons. ...

If you have a case worker that handles your ADAP or Ryan White or both they should be able to help find a good plan for you or the right plan for you in your area. Every state has different requirements and guidelines.
I tell you this because work for the Federal Call Center (Health Insurance: Medicare and Marketplace). Plus I sell them on the side as well with my business.
Check with your ADAP or Ryan White CM first then if you want you can reach out to me.
