Coinsurance

An amount you may be required to pay as your share of the cost for health care services or prescriptions after you pay any deductibles. Coinsurance is usually a percentage (for example, 20%).

Deductible

The amount you must pay for health care services or prescriptions each year, before your Medicare drug plan, your Medicare Health Plan, or your other insurance begins to pay. These amounts can change every year.

Dosage

The prescribed strength or amount of therapeutic ingredient(s) administered at prescribed intervals.

Drug Coverage

This tells you that a plan offers coverage of prescription drugs.

Drug Restrictions

The plan may have certain coverage restrictions (including quantity limits, prior authorization, and step therapy) on a prescription drug.

Example of Restrictions

Example of Restrictions

Estimated Annual Drug Costs

This is an estimate of the average amount you might expect to pay each year for your prescription drug coverage. This estimate includes the following costs, as applicable:

  • Monthly premiums
  • Annual deductible
  • Drug copayments/coinsurance
  • Drug costs not covered by prescription drug insurance

If you entered your drugs into the Medicare Plan Finder, then this estimate includes the cost of those drugs.

If you selected "I don’t take any drugs," then this amount includes only the cost of the monthly premiums that you would pay for the plan and it does not include any drug costs.

If you selected "I don’t want to add drugs now," then this estimate includes the average drug costs for people with Medicare and may differ depending on your age and health status.

Your expenses may be lower if you have limited income and resources.

Formulary

A list of prescription drugs covered by a prescription drug plan offering prescription drug benefits.

Monthly Premium

The periodic payment to Medicare, an insurance company, or a health care plan for health or prescription drug coverage. In a few cases, a note will say "Under Review" instead of a premium amount. This means Medicare and the company are still discussing the amount.

MTM Program

Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Programs

offer free services to eligible members of Medicare drug plans. These services help make sure that medications are working to improve their members' health. Members can talk with a pharmacist or other health professional and find out how to get the most benefit from their medications. Members can ask questions about costs, drug reactions, or other problems. Each member gets their own action plan and medication list after the discussion. These can be shared with their doctors or other health care providers. Members who take different medications for more than one health condition may contact their drug plan to see if they're eligible.  Humana * Medicare.gov *

  1. Hello,
    I have just received social security spousal benefits and was told I will receive $981.00 monthly on 4th Wed. beginning May 2021.

    My question is in regards to my existing medicare payments.

    I already have quarterly payments for medicare set up as automatic withdrawal from my bank.
    My next payment for $445.50 is due 4/25/2021.
    So will my payment continue to come out of my bank account or does Social security pay the amount automatically now ?
    Not sure how this works. Please help!?

    • Social Security’s website says it’s automatic… I would watch and double check.

      If you get Social Security or Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) benefits, your Part B (Medical Insurance) premium will get deducted automatically from your benefit payment. Medicare.gov

      Please see our webpage on paying Part B Premiums & Enrollment, namely these FAQ’s

      Where’s my bill?

      Payment Options

      Try checking your Medicare or Social Security accounts… See above webpage if you need to set them up.

      If all else fails:

      If you have questions about your premiums or need to change your address on your bill, call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213.

  2. I tried to sign up for a Medicare Account, but it asked so many security questions I couldn’t get through and then said to try later?

  3. I don’t have my ID card from Medicare, but I do have a bill for Part B. Is there anyway to know my Medicare ID # so I can enroll in Part D, Medi Gap or Medicare Advantage?
