Chart Legend:

Below are a few notes to help with the understanding of the 2015 Medicare Advantage Plan chart above and Search Tips to help you narrow down your list of plans to those that best meet your needs.
.

  • Plan Name: This is the official plan name from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The same plan name generally has a different plan id in each state. (Search Tip: If you would like to reduce the plans shown to just plans for one or two specific carriers, you can select the carrier name in the "Plan Family" fields 1 and 2. Select the empty (blank) option at the top of the list to remove the criteria. You can also click the "National Plans" checkbox to limit your search to just national plans.)
  • CMS Plan Ratings: these are found under the Plan Name at the left side of the chart.

    This is a 1 to 5 star rating system with five (5) stars as excellent, four (4) stars as very good, three (3) stars as good, two (2) stars as fair and one (1) star as poor.

    Cust. Service Rating - Drug Plan Customer Service - Medicare and members rate the drug plan and how well a drug plan provides customer service.

    This category includes measures of how drug plans rate on the following areas:
    • Time on Hold When Customer and Pharmacist Calls Drug Plan.
    • Calls Disconnected When Customer and Pharmacist Calls Drug Plan.
    • Drug Plan’s Timeliness in Giving a Decision for Members Who Make an Appeal.
    • Fairness of Drug Plan’s Denials to a Member’s Appeal, Based on an Independent Reviewer.
  • Member Plan Exper. - Member Experience with Drug Plan - This category shows how well drug plans make prescription drugs available to their members.

    This category includes measures of how drug plans rate on the following areas:
    • Drug Plan Provides Information or Help When Members Need It.
    • Members’ Overall Rating of Drug Plan.
    • Members’ Ability to Get Prescriptions Filled Easily When Using the Drug Plan.
  • RxCost Info Rating - This category shows how well drug plans are doing with pricing prescriptions and providing information on the Medicare website.

    This category includes measures of how drug plans rate on the following areas:
    • Completeness of the Drug Plan’s Information on Members Who Need Extra Help.
    • Drug Plan Provides Current Information on Costs and Coverage for Medicare’s Website (the same data is used on this Q1Medicare.com).
    • Drug Plan’s Prices that Did Not Increase More Than Expected During the Year.
    • Drug Plan’s Prices on Medicare’s Website (and this website) Are Similar to the Prices Members Pay at the Pharmacy.
    • Drug Plan’s Members 65 and Older Who Received Prescriptions for Certain Drugs with a High Risk of Side Effects, when There May Be Safer Drug Choices.
  • County: Medicare Advantage Plans are only available in specific county and in some cases only in part of a county. This field will note the county where the plan is available or in some cases, "Statewide" if the plan is available in every county. (Search Tip: You must enter your 5 digit ZIP Code in the criteria field to begin your search. We will determine your county from your ZIP code and only show appropriate plans.)

  • Monthly Premium: This is the amount you must pay each month to use the plan. For the Medicare Advantage Plans shown above, this premium includes Medicare Part C AND Part D (if the plan has prescription drug coverage). This monthly premium must be paid even if you are in the initial deductible phase or the coverage gap (donut hole) phase. (Search Tip: If you would like to reduce the plans shown to just plans under a certain premium, enter this value in the "Maximum Premium" field.)

  • Deductible: This is the $320 deductible that was presented in the CMS Standard Plan. Many provider’s plans do not have a deductible, however the premium may be higher. (Search Tip: If you would like to reduce the plans shown to just plans with a deductible under a certain value, enter this value in the "Maximum Deductible field" field.)

  • Gap Coverage: the Donut Hole: In the CMS Standard Plan, the beneficiary must pay the next $3,720 in drug costs (the Donut Hole). The Healthcare Reform provides that for Plan Year 2015, ALL formulary generics will have at least a 35% discount and ALL brand drugs will have at least a 55% 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 Rx Cov.: This plan does not include prescription drug coverage. You are 100% responsible for your medication costs. If you would like to see ONLY those plans that do include some type of prescription coverage, please select ":Show only plans WITH Drug Coverage" in the "Prescription Drug Coverage" selector above (this is the default setting);
    • No Gap Coverage: you must pay the $3,720;
    • Yes: This plan offers some level of gap coverage. See plan details for a description of the gap coverage. It will read similar to: Under this plan you may pay even less for the brand and generic drugs on the formulary. Your cost varies by tier. You will need to use your formulary to locate your drug's tier. See the chart that follows to find out how much it will cost you.
  • Plan ID: This is the unique id for this particular plan.

  • Copay / Coinsurance - Cost Sharing - These figures apply to the initial coverage phase of your plan. This is the phase after the initial deductible has been met and before you reach the Coverage Gap (Donut Hole). Plans often cover drugs in "tiers". Tiers are specific to the list of drugs covered by the plan. Plans may have several tiers, and the copay for a drug depends on which tier the drug is in. Plans can form their own tiers, so you should contact the plan or reference it’s summary of benefits to find out what copays and limitations are associated with each tier. These cost sharing figures DO NOT necessarily apply to the Coverage Gap. The plan may have a separate copay/coinsurance for the same drug while in the Coverage Gap. (Search Tip: If you would like to reduce the plans shown to just plans that have a tier 1 (Generics) co-pay of up to a certain value (ex: $0 co-pay), enter the value (ex: 0) in the "Max. Co-pay Tier 1 (Generics)" field.)


Additional Information Fields:
You can select one of the following additional pieces of plan information to display (Search Tip: to change the type of information shown in the last column of the chart, select the data to be shown in the "Additional Info" field.)
  • Total Formulary Drugs (default) - This is the total number of medications on the plans formulary or drug list. This total drug count does not include "Bonus Drugs". These are non-Medicare Part D drugs which are covered by the plan, however they do not count toward your plan deductible, retail drug cost, or TrOOP.

  • Plan’s Summary Star Rating - This is the overall star rating for the Medicare Part D plan. To learn more about the star ratings, please see our Plan Quality Star Ratings.

  • Offers Mail Order - "Yes" is displayed if this plan offers mail order on any medications. It does NOT mean that ALL medications are available through mail order.

  • Members in This Plan ID (August 2015 figures) - This is the total number of members in this plan's service area (a "Plan ID" is a specific contract ID and plan ID, for example H1234-001). The number of members for the selected county and the enrollment for the selected state are shown in addition to the plan ID enrollment on the plan details page. you can access the plan details by clicking the plan name, orange enroll options button, or the plan details icon.
  • Initial Coverage Limit (ICL) - The initial coverage limit phase of a Medicare Part D plan is the phase AFTER the initial deductible is met (if the plan has an initial deductible) and BEFORE the coverage gap (or donut hole) begins. The ICL is the phase of the prescription drug plan during which you and your plan share your prescription costs. During this phase you will pay either a co-payment (a flat fee per prescription) or co-insurance (a percentage of the drug cost). The details of the cost-sharing for the plan are shown in the Cost-Sharing column directly to the left of this column. The CMS standard Initial Coverage Limit for 2015 is $2,960 and increases each year.

  • MOOP for Part A & B Benefits - MOOP is the Maximum Out-of-Pocket limit set by the Medicare Advantage Plan. The figure shown is the beneficiaries yearly maximum out of pocket cost-sharing expenditure (co-payments / co-insurance) for Medicare Parts A & B (NOT Part D - prescription drug cost-sharing). Also see, What happens when I reach my Medicare Advantage plan maximum out of pocket limit (MOOP)? N/A means that this plan does not actually offer health cost-sharing benefits. Example: a Medicare Savings Account (MSA).

  • Health Plan Type - This the organization type for the Medicare Advantage Plan. This could be Health Maintenance Organization (HMO), Preferred Provider Organization (PPO), etc. (Search Tip: If you would like to limit your search to a specific type of Medicare Advantage Plans, please select the health plan type in the "Type of Health Coverage" field.)

  • SNP Eligibility Requirements - Special Needs Plans (SNPs) have an eligibility requirement whereas all other Medicare Advantage plans do not. (Search Tip: If you would like to limit your search to specific types of Special Needs Medicare Advantage Plans, please check the appropriate boxes in the "Special Needs Plans (SNP) Options" field.)

  • 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.
  • Disclaimer for Institutional Special Needs Plan (SNP): This plan is available to anyone with Medicare who meets the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) level of care and resides in a nursing home.
  • Disclaimer for Dual Eligible (Medicare/Medicaid) Special Needs Plan (SNP): This plan is available to anyone who has both Medical Assistance from the State and Medicare.

  • Disclaimer for Chronic Condition Special Needs Plan (SNP): This plan is available to anyone with Medicare who has been diagnosed with the plan specific Chronic Condition.
  • 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.
