Part D: Prescription Drug Plans
Basics of Medicare Part D
Medicare Part D is prescription drug coverage available to anyone with Medicare.
There are two types of Medicare drug plans:
- Medicare Prescription Drug Plans. These work to add drug coverage to Original Medicare.
- Medicare Advantage Plans. This is what you have as an AvMed Medicare Member. It combines your drug coverage with the other parts of Medicare to give you an all-in-one package. Medicare Advantage (MA) plans are called "Part C". Part C encompasses Parts A and B in one plan. Some plans may offer Part D coverage within Part C. These plans are often referred to as MA-PD plans.
In simple terms, your Part D coverage as an AvMed Medicare Member is included in your Medicare Advantage Plan.
Prescription Coverage and Costs
The types of drugs you're covered for and at what cost varies by plan. There are no deductibles for AvMed Medicare prescription coverage. In general, prescriptions can be broken down into five tiers from Preferred Generic with the lowest copay to Specialty Medications with the highest copay or cost.
To get information about your plan's prescription coverage, log in to the Member Portal and click on "Pharmacy Benefits."
