A few notes to help with the understanding of the 2013 Medicare Part D Plan chart above.
  • Plan Name: This is the official plan name from CMS
  • Deductible: This is the $325 deductible that was presented in the CMS Standard Plan. Many provider’s plans do not have a deductible, however the premium may be higher.
  • Qualifies for $0 Premium with Full Low-Income Subsidy?: If Yes is in the field, then you would pay a $0 premium if you have a Full Low-Income Subsidy. If No is in the field, then you would be responsible for the difference between what the state provides as the Full Low-Income Subsidy and the actual cost of the plan even if you have a Full Low-Income Subsidy.
  • Coverage Gap the Donut Hole: In the CMS Standard Plan, the beneficiary must pay the next $3763.75 in drug costs (the Donut Hole). The Healthcare Reform provides that for Plan Year 2013, ALL formulary generics will have at least a 21% discount and ALL brand drugs will have at least a 52.5% discount in the coverage gap. The Gap Coverage Types discussed in this section are in addition to the Healthcare Reform mandated discounts. In our chart, you will see one of the following:
    • No Gap Coverage: you must pay the $3763.75;

    • Few Generics: less than 10% of formulary generics are covered, but you must pay for Brand Drugs up to $3763.75;
    • Some Generics: 10% to 65% of formulary generics are covered, but you must pay for Brand Drugs up to $3763.75;

    • Many Generics: 65% to 100% of formulary generics are covered, but you must pay for Brand Drugs up to $3763.75;

    • All Generics : All formulary Generics are covered, but you must pay for Brand Drugs up to $3763.75;

    • Many Generics & Some Brands: These Medicare prescription drug plans cover 65% to 100% of formulary generics and a some (10% to 65%) of Brand drugs on the plan’s formulary.

    • Some Generics & Some Brands: These Medicare prescription drug plans cover 10% to 65% of Generic and Brand drugs on the plan’s formulary. (Search Tip: If you would like to reduce the plans shown to just plans with a certain type of gap coverage, select this type of coverage in the "Type of Gap Coverage" field.)

  • Benefit Type: Basic means that this plan follows the standard CMS plan. Enhanced means that this plan has features above and beyond the standard CMS plan.
  • Plan ID: This is the unique id for this particular plan.

However, Q1Medicare is not intended as a substitute for your lawyer, doctor, healthcare provider, financial advisor, or pharmacist. For more information on your Medicare coverage, please be sure to seek legal, medical, pharmaceutical, or financial advice from a licensed professional or telephone Medicare at 1-800-633-4227.
  • Benefits, formulary, pharmacy network, provider network, premium and/or co-payments/co-insurance may change on January 1 of each year. Our PDP-Compare.com and MA-Compare.com provide highlights of annual plan benefit changes.
  • The benefit information provided is a brief summary, not a complete description of benefits. For more information contact the plan.
  • Limitations, copayments, and restrictions may apply.
  • We make every effort to show all available Medicare Part D or Medicare Advantage plans in your service area. However, since our data is provided by Medicare, it is possible that this may not be a complete listing of plans available in your service area. For a complete listing please contact 1-800-MEDICARE (TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048), 24 hours a day/7 days a week or consult www.medicare.gov.
  • When enrolling in a Medicare Advantage plan, you must continue to pay your Medicare Part B premium.
  • Medicare beneficiaries with higher incomes may be required to pay both a Medicare Part B and Medicare Part D Income Related Monthly Adjustment Amount (IRMAA). Read more on IRMAA.
  • Medicare Advantage plans that include prescription drug coverage (MAPDs) are considered Medicare Part D plans and members with higher incomes may be subject to the Medicare Part D Income Related Monthly Adjustment Amount (IRMAA), just as members in stand-alone Part D plans.

  • Medicare evaluates plans based on a 5-Star rating system. Star Ratings are calculated each year and may change from one year to the next.
  • A Medicare Advantage Private Fee-for-Service plan (PFFS) is not a Medicare supplement plan. Providers who do not contract with the plan are not required to see you except in an emergency.

  • Medicare MSA Plans combine a high deductible Medicare Advantage Plan and a trust or custodial savings account (as defined and/or approved by the IRS). The plan deposits money from Medicare into the account. You can use this money to pay for your health care costs, but only Medicare-covered expenses count toward your deductible. The amount deposited is usually less than your deductible amount, so you generally have to pay out-of-pocket before your coverage begins.

  • There are additional restrictions to join an MSA plan, and enrollment is generally for a full calendar year unless you meet certain exceptions. Those who disenroll during the calendar year will owe a portion of the account deposit back to the plan. Contact the plan provider for additional information.
