What to know about prescription drug plans (Medicare Part D)
Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) does not include prescription drug coverage (Medicare Part D). That’s why drug plans are a good idea if you have prescriptions to fill regularly or just want help covering medication costs.
You can get a prescription drug plan from Amerigroup once you’ve enrolled in Original Medicare. Here are some benefits you’ll find with Amerivantage standalone prescription drug plans:
- A network of more than 66,000 pharmacies – that’s almost every pharmacy in America.
- A network of 24,000 preferred pharmacies we work with to help you save on many prescription drugs.
- Competitive monthly premiums as low as $20.50 (varies depending on where you live).
- Copays as low as $1 for generic drugs.
A standalone drug plan isn’t your only option for prescriptions. Most of our Medicare Advantage plans (Part C) are all-in-one plans that cover prescription drugs, along with other benefits like dental and vision insurance. If you have a Medicare Advantage plan that includes Part D coverage, you don’t need a standalone prescription drug plan.
