|The Initial Coverage Phase (ICP) can be thought of as the cost-sharing phase of the plan. During this phase, you and the insurance company share your prescription costs. Once you have spent $340, your initial coverage phase will start. All medication are divided into tiers within the plans formulary. This helps the plan to organize and manage the prescription cost-sharing. The Amerivantage Rx Basic (PDP)’s formulary is divided into 5 tiers. Every plan can name their tiers differently, and can place medications on any tier. The cost-sharing for this plan is divided as follows: |
The Amerivantage Rx Basic (PDP)’s Initial Coverage Limit is $4,020. When this limit is reached, you exit the Initial Coverage Phase and enter the Coverage Gap (or Donut Hole).
|The Coverage Gap, which is also known as the Donut (Doughnut) Hole is the phase of your Medicare Part D plan where
you are responsible for 100% of your medication costs. Healthcare Reform mandates that the insurance carrier pay 75% of your generic drug prescription costs in the donut hole on your behalf. |
The brand-name drug manufacturer will pay 70% and your plan will pay an additional 5% of the cost of your brand-name drugs purchased in the Donut Hole, for a total of 75% discount. The 70% paid by the brand-name drug manufacturer is paid on your behalf and therefore counts toward your TrOOP (or True Out-of-Pocket) costs. The portion paid by your plan, does not count toward TrOOP. Some Medicare Part D plans offer coverage during the Coverage Gap that is beyond the mandated discounts. Any drug not covered by the plan’s Gap Coverage will still receive the discounts noted above -- even if the plan has "No Gap Coverage". This plan (Amerivantage Rx Basic (PDP)) offers No Coverage during the Coverage Gap phase.
