Chart Legend:

What does all this mean? Below are a few notes to help you understand the 2008 Medicare Part D Plan information above.



A few notes to help with the understanding of the 2008 Medicare Part D Plan chart above.
  • Plan Name: This is the official plan name from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The same plan name generally has a different plan id in each state.

  • CMS Plan Ratings: these are found under the Plan Name at the left side of the chart.

    This is a one to 5 star rating system with five (5) stars as excellent, four (4) stars as very good, three (3) stars as good, two (2) stars as fair and one (1) star as poor.

    Cust. Service Rating - Drug Plan Customer Service - Medicare and members rate the drug plan and how well a drug plan provides customer service.

    This category includes measures of how drug plans rate on the following areas:
    • Time members and pharmacists are on hold when they call the drug plan’s customer call centers and pharmacy help desk.
    • Calls disconnected by the drug plan’s customer call center and pharmacy help desk.
    • Complaints Medicare has received about the drug plan.
    • Members’ satisfaction related to getting help from the drug plan and their overall rating of the drug plan.

» Top
    Filling a Rx Rating - Using Your Plan To Get Your Prescriptions Filled - This category shows how well drug plans make prescription drugs available to their members.

    This category includes measures of how drug plans rate on the following areas:
    • Plan members’ ability to get prescriptions filled easily.
    • Enrollment information the drug plan shares with pharmacists when a member needs a prescription filled.
    • Information Medicare and the drug plan have about plan members who qualify for extra help.
    • Complaints Medicare has received about the drug plan’s benefits and access to prescription drugs. These complaints include situations where your drug plan membership card doesn’t work at the pharmacy, or a pharmacy is listed incorrectly on Medicare’s website.
    • Complaints Medicare has received about joining and leaving the drug plan. These complaints include situations where you don’t receive enrollment materials (like your membership card) from your drug plan, or you have difficulty switching to a new drug plan.
    • How often a plan failed to make a timely appeals decision. Appeals are special kinds of requests you file when you disagree with certain decisions made by the drug plan about getting a prescription filled.

» Top
    RxCost Info Rating - This category shows how well drug plans are doing with pricing prescriptions and providing information on the Medicare website.

    This category includes measures of how drug plans rate on the following areas:
    • Availability of drug coverage and cost information from the drug plan and how often the plan’s drug prices change on the Medicare website.
    • Complaints Medicare has received about pricing and out-of-pocket costs. These complaints include situations where you were charged the wrong price for a prescription, or the wrong plan premium amount was deducted from your Social Security check.

» Top
  • Monthly Premium: This is the amount you must pay each month to use the plan. This monthly premium must be paid even if you are in the initial deductible phase or the coverage gap (donut hole) phase.

  • Deductible: This is the $275 deductible that was presented in the CMS Standard Plan. Many provider's plans do not have a deductible, however the premium may be higher.

  • Gap Coverage: the Donut Hole: In the CMS Standard Plan, the beneficiary must pay the next $3216.25 in drug costs (the Donut Hole). Many provider's plans cover the costs that fall into this category for an additional premium. In our chart, you will see one of the following:
    • No Gap Coverage: you must pay the $3216.25;

    • Some Generics, All Preferred Generics, All Generics : Various Generics are covered, but you must pay for Brand Drugs up to $3216.25;

    • All Generic & Some Brands: One regional plan, only available in Florida covers all Generics and some of the Brands.

  • $0 Premium with Full LIS - Does the plan Qualify for $0 Premium with Full Low-Income Subsidy?: If Yes is in the field, then you would pay a $0 premium if you have a Full Low-Income Subsidy (LIS). If No is in the field, then you would be responsible for the difference between what the state provides as the Full Low-Income Subsidy and the actual cost of the plan even if you have a Full Low-Income Subsidy.

  • Plan ID: This is the unique id for this particular plan.

» Top
  • Copay / Coinsurance - Cost Sharing - These figures apply to the initial coverage phase of your plan. This is the phase after the initial deductible has been met and before you reach the Coverage Gap (Donut Hole). Plans often cover drugs in "tiers". Tiers are specific to the list of drugs covered by the plan. Plans may have several tiers, and the copay for a drug depends on the drug’s tier. Plans can form their own tiers, so you should contact the plan or reference it's summary of benefits to find out what copays and limitations are associated with each tier. These cost sharing figures DO NOT necessarily apply to the Coverage Gap. The plan may have a separate copay/coinsurance for the same drug while in the Coverage Gap.

  • Plan Enrollment Figures - Currently we are showing the 2007 Medicare Part D plan enrollment figures (statistics) from July 2007. 2008 Enrollment Figures will be shown starting February 2008 and updated in July 2008. The enrollment statistics are split into three numbers
    • In This State - This figure is the 2007 Medicare Part D plan enrollment statistic for this plan in this particular CMS region. In 25 of the 34 regions there is only one state, however some states are combined with others to form a region. Most notably, region 25 is made up of IA, MN, MT, NE, ND, SD, and WY. The enrollment that you see reported for any of these states is the combined enrollment for all of these states. The enrollment figures are reported by Medicare per Plan ID.
    • Avg All States - This figure is the statistical average for this plan across all regions. This figure is approximate due to the fact that any region/plan enrollment under 10 enrollees is not reported.
    • Total All States - This figure is the total count of enrollees in this plan across all regions. This figure is approximate due to the fact that any region/plan enrollment under 10 enrollees is not reported.

The amount deposited is usually less than your deductible amount, so you generally have to pay out-of-pocket before your coverage begins.
