The following is specific for PacificSource Medicare Advantage plans with drug coverage:
PacificSource has announced a change in how Medicare requires plans to administer their prescription drug benefits. This change may likely mean clients will be paying slightly lower copayments for a one-month supply of their medications, and may differ from plan documents.
A new Medicare rule for 2014 mandates prorated copayments to be applied to prescriptions written for less than a one month supply. That means you will have to pay a prorated amount for any prescription lasting less than 31 days.
So, PacificSource has announced that it will cover 31 days of medication as a one-month supply.
Please see the table below for detailed copayment amounts.
