Are All Medications Covered Under Part D (prescription drug plans)?

Are-all-Medications-covered-under-part-d

Each plan for prescription drug coverage must give you at least a standard level of coverage that is set by Medicare.  All plans can vary the cost of prescription drugs they cover (this is their formulary) and how they place drugs into a tier on their formulary.  

Each Medicare Part D prescription drug plan provider decides which drugs not to cover on its formulary, these categories of drugs are usually not covered but a plan may decide to put it on their formulary.  

  • Over-the-counter drugs (non-prescription drugs)
  • Weight loss or weight gain drugs
  • Drugs for cosmetic purposes or hair growth
  • Drugs for sexual or erectile dysfunction
  • Drugs when used to promote fertility.
  • Drugs when used for the relief of cough or cold symptoms.
  • Prescription vitamins and minerals (except for prenatal vitamins and fluoride preparations).

Medicare Part D also does not cover any drugs that are covered under Medicare Part B.

Meet Melissa MacCalla

Medicare is not simple and can be hard, frustrating, and downright confusing for most. I love when I get someone on the phone and I am given the opportunity to explain the difference in plans to them and have Medicare make sense. I enjoy talking to clients year after year, hearing about their families growing or them asking about mine.
