Prescription Drug Coverage

Drugs Covered under Medicare Part B

General

20% of the cost for Medicare Part B chemotherapy drugs and other Part B drugs.

30% of the cost for Medicare Part B drugs out-of-network.


Drugs Covered under Medicare Part D

General

This plan uses a formulary. The plan will send you the formulary. You can also see the formulary at http://http://www.arkansasbluecross.com on the web.

Different out-of-pocket costs may apply for people who
  • have limited incomes,
  • live in long term care facilities, or
  • have access to Indian/Tribal/Urban (Indian Health Service) providers.


The plan offers national in-network prescription coverage (i.e., this would include 50 states and the District of Columbia). This means that you will pay the same cost-sharing amount for your prescription drugs if you get them at an in-network pharmacy outside of the plan's service area (for instance when you travel).

Total yearly drug costs are the total drug costs paid by both you and a Part D plan.

The plan may require you to first try one drug to treat your condition before it will cover another drug for that condition.

Some drugs have quantity limits.

Your provider must get prior authorization from AR Blue Cross - Medi-Pak Advantage MA-PD Option 1 (PFFS) for certain drugs.

You must go to certain pharmacies for a very limited number of drugs, due to special handling, provider coordination, or patient education requirements that cannot be met by most pharmacies in your network. These drugs are listed on the plan's website, formulary, printed materials, as well as on the Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Finder on Medicare.gov.

If the actual cost of a drug is less than the normal cost-sharing amount for that drug, you will pay the actual cost, not the higher cost-sharing amount.

If you request a formulary exception for a drug and AR Blue Cross - Medi-Pak Advantage MA-PD Option 1 (PFFS) approves the exception, you will pay Tier 4: Non-Preferred Brand cost sharing for that drug.

In-Network

$250 deductible on all drugs except Tier 1: Preferred Generic drugs.
