Paying Your Plan Premium

You can pay your monthly plan premium (including any late enrollment penalty you may owe) by mail
each month. You can also choose to pay your premium by automatic deduction from your Social Security
or Railroad Retirement Board benefit check each month.
If you are assessed a Part D-Income Related Monthly Adjustment Amount (IRMAA), you will be notified by
the Social Security Administration. You will be responsible for paying this extra amount in addition to
your plan premium. You will either have the amount withheld from your Social Security or Railroad
Retirement Board benefit check or be billed directly by Medicare. Do NOT pay the Part D-IRMAA extra
amount to Blue MedicareRx.
People with limited incomes may qualify for Extra Help to pay for their prescription drug costs. If you qualify,
Medicare could pay for 75% or more of your drug costs including monthly prescription drug premiums, annual
deductibles, and co-insurance. Additionally, those who qualify won’t have a coverage gap or a late enrollment
penalty. Many people are eligible for these savings and don’t even know it. For more information about this Extra
Help, contact your local Social Security office, or call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213. TTY users should call
1-800-325-0778. You can also apply for Extra Help online at www.socialsecurity.gov/prescriptionhelp.
If you qualify for Extra Help with your Medicare prescription drug coverage costs, Medicare will pay all or part of
your plan premium. If Medicare pays only a portion of this premium, we will bill you for the amount that Medicare
doesn’t cover.
Please select a premium payment option. (If you don’t select an option, you will receive a monthly bill.)
Reminder, if you have secondary coverage that pays for part of your premiums (for example: from your
employer or an SPAP) then you must choose monthly bills that you can pay by mail, in order for the secondary
coverage to be applied correctly.

If you are a member of a Medicare Advantage Plan (like an HMO or PPO), you may already have prescription drug
coverage from your Medicare Advantage Plan that will meet your needs. By joining Blue MedicareRx, your
membership in your Medicare Advantage Plan may end. This will affect both your doctor and hospital coverage as well
as your prescription drug coverage. Read the information that your Medicare Advantage Plan sends you and if you
have questions, contact your Medicare Advantage Plan.

If you currently have health coverage from an employer or union, joining Blue MedicareRx could affect your
employer or union health benefits. You could lose your employer or union health coverage if you join Blue
MedicareRx. Read the communications your employer or union sends you. If you have questions, visit their website, or

By completing this enrollment application, I agree to the following:

Blue MedicareRx is a Medicare drug plan and has a contract with the Federal Government. I understand that this
prescription drug coverage is in addition to my coverage under Medicare; therefore, I will need to keep my Medicare
Part A or Part B coverage. It is my responsibility to inform Blue MedicareRx of any prescription drug coverage that I
have or may get in the future. I can only be in one Medicare prescription drug plan at a time – if I am currently in a
Medicare Prescription Drug Plan, my enrollment in Blue MedicareRx will end that enrollment. Enrollment in this plan is
generally for the entire year. Once I enroll, I understand that I may only leave this plan or make changes during the
Annual Enrollment Period (October 15 – December 7 each year), unless I qualify for a special enrollment period sooner
under certain special circumstances allowed by CMS.

Blue MedicareRx serves a specific service area. If I move out of the area that Blue MedicareRx serves, I need to notify
the plan so I can disenroll and find a new plan in my new area. I understand that I must use network pharmacies except
in an emergency when I cannot reasonably use Blue MedicareRx network pharmacies. Once I am a member of Blue
MedicareRx, I have the right to appeal plan decisions about payment or services if I disagree. I will read the Evidence
of Coverage document from Blue MedicareRx when I get it to know which rules I must follow to get coverage.

I understand that if I leave this plan and don’t have or get other Medicare prescription drug coverage or creditable
prescription drug coverage (as good as Medicare’s), I may have to pay a late enrollment penalty in addition to my
premium for Medicare prescription drug coverage in the future.

I understand that if I am getting assistance from a sales agent, broker, or other individual employed by or contracted
with Blue MedicareRx, he/she may be paid based on my enrollment in Blue MedicareRx.

Counseling services may be available in my state to provide advice concerning Medicare supplement insurance or
other Medicare Advantage or Prescription Drug Plan options, medical assistance through the state Medicaid program
and the Medicare Savings Program.

Release of Information:
By joining this Medicare prescription drug plan, I acknowledge that Blue MedicareRx will release my information to
Medicare and other plans as is necessary for treatment, payment and health care operations. I also acknowledge that
Blue MedicareRx will release my information, including my prescription drug event data, to Medicare, who may release
it for research and other purposes which follow all applicable Federal statutes and regulations. The information on this
enrollment form is correct to the best of my knowledge. I understand that if I intentionally provide false information on
this form, I will be disenrolled from the plan.

with Blue MedicareRx, he/she may be paid based on my enrollment in Blue MedicareRx.
