|The Coverage Gap, which is also known as the Donut (Doughnut) Hole is the phase of your Medicare Part D plan where
you are responsible for 100% of your medication costs. Healthcare Reform mandates that the insurance carrier pay 21% of your generic drug prescription costs in the donut hole on your behalf.
The brand-name drug manufacturer will pay 50% and your plan will pay an additional 2.5% of the cost of your brand-name drugs pruchased in the Donut Hole. The 50% paid by
the brand-name drug manufacturer is paid on your behalf and therefore counts toward your TrOOP (or True Out-of-Pocket) costs. The portion paid by your plan, does not count toward TrOOP. Some Medicare Part D plans offer coverage during the Coverage Gap that is beyond the mandated discounts.
Any drug not covered by the plan’s Gap Coverage will still receive the discounts noted above -- even if the plan has "No Gap Coverage". This plan (Cigna-HealthSpring TotalCare (HMO SNP)) offers No Coverage during the Coverage Gap phase.|
