May 2013 Summary of the Most Recent Updates for the Medicare Part D Plan Formularies (Drug Lists)

Published on 2013-05-28 17:51:46Category: Monthly Formulary Changes

The most recent (May 2013) Medicare Part D plan formulary data (or drug lists) updates include the addition of 131 new National Drug Codes (NDC) to the Medicare Part D program.  These represent 77 different drugs, many with multiple strengths or delivery forms.

The NDC uniquely identifies a particular drug, manufacturer, strength, and packaging combination. The NDC is often shown on your prescription bottle as an 11-digit code (see the charts below) or could be formatted as 00000-0000-00 where the first set of numbers identifies the manufacturer, the second set of number identifies the product and strength, and the third set of numbers identifies the packaging.

There are many reasons for NDCs to be added to the Medicare Part D program, a summary is a follows:

Reason for NDC Addition Occurences
new delivery form/manfuacturer 4
new delivery form/strength 2
new delivery form/strength/manfuacturer 1
new drug 25
new drug strength 20
new drug with multiple strengths 45
new drug, strength and delivery form 4
new drug, strength and manufacturer 3
new manufacturer 5
new strength and manufacturer 22

The majority of the 131 new NDCs included new drug strengths and in some cases manufacturers. Two new generic alternatives were introduced:

  • VALSARTAN-HCTZ generic equivalent for Diovan HCT® is on 72 PDP and 246 MAPD formularies
  • RIZATRIPTAN generic equivalent for Maxalt-MLT® is on 51 PDP and 197 MAPD formularies

The following 131 manufacturer / drug / strength / packaging combinations (NDCs) were added to one or more Medicare Part D formularies in the most recent updates. You can click on the NDC or Drug Name below to go to our Q1Medicare.com DrugFinder to see the details of how this drug is handled by all Medicare Part D Plans in Florida -- You can then change the state to your state for details in your service area.
