What Is Medicare Part D?

Medicare Part D is prescription drug coverage that is available
to you if you’re eligible for Medicare. This prescription drug
benefit is administered by private insurance companies, like
Blue Cross and Blue Shield, that contract with the Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

How Part D works: (Information provided below is specific to 2019)

In addition to the monthly premium, Medicare Part D plans have four different stages:

Annual Deductible (if applicable), Initial Coverage, Coverage Gap, and Catastrophic Coverage.

Annual Deductible Here's how they work:
(if applicable)
Initial Coverage The Blue MedicareRx Value Plus plan has an annual deductible only on Tiers 3, 4, and 5.
Coverage Gap The Blue MedicareRx Premier plan has no annual deductible.
Refer to the Plan Comparison Chart on pages 8-9 for more details.
Catastrophic There is a $3,820 initial coverage limit. This includes your copayments, co-insurance,
Coverage and payments made by the plan for covered prescriptions.
There is a coverage gap that starts once total drug costs (member and plan
payments) reach $3,820 and ends when your out-of-pocket prescription drug costs
reach $5,100.

When you're in the Coverage Gap stage, you pay 37% of the costs of generic
drugs. For brand-name drugs, you pay 25% of the negotiated price (excluding
the dispensing fee). You continue paying 37% for generic drugs and 25% of the
negotiated price (excluding the dispensing fee) for brand-name drugs until yearly out-
of-pocket costs paid by you and others on your behalf reach $5,100. The payments
made on your behalf (excludes payments made by Blue MedicareRx) count toward
your out-of-pocket costs.

Refer to the Plan Comparison Chart on pages 8-9 for your costs in the Coverage Gap
for each of the Blue MedicareRx plans.
Takes effect after you and others on your behalf have paid $5,100 in annual
out-of-pocket prescription costs.

10

Am I eligible?

You’re eligible for Medicare prescription drug coverage and Blue MedicareRx membership if:
• You have Medicare Part A or Medicare Part B (or you have both Part A and Part B)

» and—you’re a United States citizen or are lawfully present in the United States
» and—you live in our geographic service area

What if I already have drug coverage?

Eligible individuals may only enroll in one Medicare Prescription Drug Plan at a time. If you already have
a Medicare Advantage plan or other insurance that includes Part D coverage, enrolling in this plan will
automatically disenroll you from your current plan.
If you get your health care benefits from TRICARE®´ or the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs,
joining a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan might not be a cost-effective option, unless you qualify for
Extra Help. If you get your coverage through your employer or union, contact your benefits administrator
to compare your options.
