The benefits of Anthem Medicare Part D coverage

Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) doesn’t cover prescription medications. The out-of-pocket costs of paying for prescription drugs can be high, which can be daunting for the majority of older Americans who need prescription drugs.

Medicare Part D coverage helps you pay for your current prescription drugs, and it also helps you pay for any drugs that you may be prescribed in the future.

All of the prescription drugs that Anthem covers are divided into cost tiers. Generic drugs are typically lower cost and are on a lower tier, while name brand drugs are typically more expensive and on a higher tier. You can learn more about your drug coverage tiers by reviewing your Anthem Medicare plan drug formulary (drug list).

Depending on how you get your Anthem prescription drug coverage, you may have copays as low as $0 for certain medications.

Most Anthem Medicare Advantage Plans cover prescription drugs

Medicare Advantage plans – such as the plans available from Anthem – provide the same benefits as Original Medicare and (often) prescription drug coverage, combined into one convenient plan.

Many Anthem Medicare Advantage plans also offer hearing, vision and dental benefits, which Original Medicare doesn’t cover.
