Question: I am considering changing my prescription drug coverage to the Humana Walmart-Preferred Rx Plan and I was wondering if I can only go to Walmart for my prescriptions?

Answer:

 

No, you do not have to use Walmart as your only pharmacy.  The Humana Medicare Part D plans include over 50,000+ pharmacies in their network.

However, you may pay much more for your prescription medications if you use a pharmacy other than Walmart, Neighborhood Market Pharmacies, Sam’s Club or Right Source (Mail Order).

As the Humana website states:  “The pharmacy used to price your drugs is a part of Walmart pharmacy network. If you fill a drug at non-Walmart pharmacy, you may pay more.

Again: Walmart, Neighborhood Market Pharmacies, Sam’s Club and Right Source (Mail Order) are the only “Preferred Pharmacies” for the Humana Walmart-Preferred Rx prescription drug plan.  According to Humana, there are over 4,000 Preferred Pharmacies across the country.

You can use other pharmacies in the Humana Pharmacy Network, but the cost-sharing amount is much higher for drugs purchased outside of a Preferred Pharmacy.  Here is an example from the Medicare website showing the different cost-sharing for the Humana Walmart-Preferred Rx plan in New York (as well as all other States and Puerto Rico):

Please remember, this Medicare Part D plan also has a $320 Initial Deducatible.  This means that you will pay the first $320 of you prescription costs - before the coverage of your Part D plan begins.  If you take only very inexpensive generic medications (spending under $25 per month on generic medications) you may not ever meet your Medicare Part D plan's Initial Deductible.

 

If you would like to see if your medications are covered by this prescription drug plan, you can download the Humana Walmart-Preferred formulary by first choosing your state from the list here and then scroll down to the Humana plan section: (http://www.q1medicare.com/PartD-Medicare-PartD-Overview-by-State.php).
