Some Medicare Part D prescription drug plans cover, not only brand-name and generic prescription drugs, but also so-called "Bonus Drugs
" not usually covered by
the Medicare Part D program, such as:
- B Complex w/Vitamin C
- Folic Acid
- Multiple Vitamin Injection
- Viagra (or other ED medications)
- Over-the-Counter (OTC) medications
Please note that payments for these "Bonus" or "Supplemental" Drugs – made by you or your drug plan – may be treated differently as compared to other Medicare Part D drug payments.
For example, "Bonus Drug" purchases may not count toward your Initial Coverage Limit (ICL)
or your True Out of Pocket Cost (TrOOP)
, and so these drugs may not
affect when you enter or leave your Coverage Gap (Donut Hole) - and may not
receive a Donut Hole discount
The medications below were formerly Bonus Drugs but are now included on
many Medicare Part D plan formularies.

Please also note that we do not
include non-Part D "Bonus Drugs" or "Supplemental Drugs" in our Formulary Browser
or Drug Finder
tools since they do not affect your Medicare Part D plan's the Initial Coverage Limit or total out-of-pocket spending (TrOOP) limit.
