Costs For Initial Coverage Period

Costs will vary depending on your level of “Extra Help”. Check the Evidence of Coverage document below for complete details and to understand your prescription drug coverage.

Coverage Gap

After your total yearly drug cost (including what our plan has paid and what you have paid) reaches $3,820, you will enter the coverage gap (also called the "donut hole"). This means that there's a temporary change in what you will pay for your drugs. Not everyone will enter the coverage gap. If you enter the coverage gap, you'll pay 25% of the plan's cost for covered brand name drugs and 37% of the plan's cost for covered generic drugs until your costs total $5,100, which is the end of the coverage gap.

Catastrophic Coverage

After your yearly out-of-pocket drug costs (including drugs purchased through your retail pharmacy and through mail order) reach $5,100, you will pay the greater of:

  • 5% of the cost, or
  • a $3.40 copay for a generic drug or a drug that’s treated like a generic and a $8.50 copay for all other drugs
