Category: Monthly Formulary Changes
Published on 2013-07-01 12:16:20


The most recent (June 2013) Medicare Part D plan formulary data (or drug lists) updates include the addition of 90 new National Drug Codes (NDC) to the Medicare Part D program.  These represent 68 different drugs, many with multiple strengths or delivery forms.

The NDC uniquely identifies a particular drug, manufacturer, strength, and packaging combination. The NDC is often shown on your prescription bottle as an 11-digit code (see the charts below) or could be formatted as 00000-0000-00 where the first set of numbers identifies the manufacturer, the second set of number identifies the product and strength, and the third set of numbers identifies the packaging.

There are many reasons for NDCs to be added to the Medicare Part D program, a summary is a follows:

Reason for NDC Addition Occurrences
new delivery form 2
new drug 18
new drug strength 21
new drug with multiple strengths 11
new product code 3
new drug, strength and manufacturer 1
new manufacturer and delivery method 4
new manufacturer and strength 30

The following 90 manufacturer / drug / strength / packaging combinations (NDCs) were added to one or more Medicare Part D formularies in the most recent updates.

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