Medicare Advantage Medicare Part D Coverage Details - 2024

  • Initial coverage period

    When your coverage begins, you pay your cost share for covered prescription drugs. Your cost for a 30-day supply from a participating retail pharmacy is below. Or save money using the CVS Caremark Mail Service Pharmacy. A three-month supply of many prescriptions is available for only two co-pays. Refer to the Mass General Brigham Health Plan Formulary for details.

  • Coverage in the Gap

    If your total drug costs in 2024 reach $5,030, your cost for prescription drugs changes. You pay: 25% for generic drugs and 25% for contracted brands.

  • Reaching the Catastrophic Coverage Limit

    Beginning in 2024, if you reach the Catastrophic Coverage Stage, you pay nothing for covered Part D drugs. You may have cost sharing for excluded drugs that are covered under our enhanced benefit.

Help with drug costs

You may be eligible for certain state and federal programs that reduce your monthly prescription drug premium or co-pays.

Medicare Advantage Part D Transition Fill Policy - 2024 

Mass General Brigham Health Plans Part D Transition Policy exists to provide new (and some current) enrollees immediate access to prescription drugs within 90 days of enrollment for non-formulary drugs and drugs with utilization management requirements, such as the need for a prior authorization from us.

  • Who is eligible for a transitional supply?

    A transitional supply, or transition fill, is available to members within 90 days of your enrollment effective date in the following circumstances:

    • Join or switch drug plans during the annual Open Enrollment Period between Oct 15-Dec 7,
    • Join or switch drug plans during the year using another type of enrollment period (e.g., Initial Enrollment Period, Special Enrollment Period, or Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period),
    • New and current plan members who live in long-term care (LTC) facilities, and
    • May be available to some current plan members who are negatively affected by formulary changes from one plan year to the next.
  • Does the transition policy apply to all drugs?

    The transition policy does not apply to Part D excluded drugs, new prescriptions, or to drugs that have been removed from a plan’s formulary because of FDA safety recalls. The transition policy does apply to both non-formulary drugs and drugs with utilization management requirements.

  • What is utilization management?

    Utilization management (UM) is a restriction or action required by your plan before we will pay for medication. Quantity limits, step therapy, or prior authorization are common utilization management restrictions. These restrictions often require a doctor or prescriber to submit information about your medical condition or treatment before we can pay for the medication, even though the drug is on the formulary.

  • What do I do next?

    You should talk to your doctor to decide if you should switch to an appropriate drug that we cover or request a formulary exception so that we will cover the drug you take.
