UnitedHealthcare Medicare Part D

UnitedHealthcare can help you get a prescription drug plan (PDP) that fits your unique health and budget needs.

Because Medicare Part A and Part B (also called Original Medicare) do not cover prescription drug costs, you may want to consider a Medicare prescription drug plan (also called Medicare Part D) to help you save on your out-of-pocket costs for getting your prescriptions filled.

Medicare Part D Plans Offered Through UnitedHealthcare

UnitedHealthcare offers several different Medicare Part D plan options:

  • 2018 AARP MedicareRX Walgreens (PDP)
  • 2018 AARP MedicareRx Preferred (PDP)
  • 2018 AARP MedicareRX Saver Plus (PDP)

Not all plans are available in all areas, and you can reach out to a licensed insurance agent to find out more about the plans available where you live by calling TTY Users: 711 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Each plan has a different list of covered drugs (formulary) and tiers on which drugs are classified. Some plans may also be able to help you save money by giving you access to members-only savings if you file your prescriptions at a plan-preferred retail pharmacy.

2018 AARP MedicareRX Walgreens (PDP)

This plan could be a good fit for you if you want a low plan premium and the ability to fill your prescriptions at one of over 8,000 Walgreens locations. The plan includes a $0 annual deductible for Drug Tiers 1-2, and a $405 annual deductible for Drug Tiers 3-5. Once your deductible is met, you may have to pay a certain copayment or coinsurance when you fill a prescription.

The drugs covered by this plan include many generic and brand name drugs that are covered by Medicare Part D.

2018 AARP MedicareRX Preferred (PDP)

This plan could be a good fit for you if you want a plan that provides robust drug coverage and gives you the ability to access a broad pharmacy network. The plan features a $0 annual deductible.1 Once your deductible is met, you may have to pay a certain copayment or coinsurance when you fill a prescription.

The drugs covered by this plan includes most generic drugs and common brand name drugs covered by Medicare Part D and is the most extensive formulary of any UnitedHealthcare Part D plan.

2018 AARP MedicareRX Saver Plus (PDP)

This plan could be a good fit for you if you don’t take many prescription drugs and want to try to save more money by paying lower copays. The plan features a $405 annual deductible. Once your deductible is met, you may have to pay a certain copayment or coinsurance when you fill a prescription.

The drugs covered by this plan include most of the generic and commonly used brand name drugs that are covered Medicare Part D.

You could potentially save even more money with a UnitedHealthcare Medicare Part D plan if you use OptumRx® for home delivery of your prescriptions.2

With OptumRx®, you have access to pharmacists who are available by phone to answer your questions at any time, day or night. There is also no charge for standard delivery of prescriptions to any address in the U.S., including U.S. territories.

Enrolling in UnitedHealthcare Drug Coverage

Because each type of Medicare drug plan is different, and because there are only certain times of the year you may enroll in a Part D plan, you may want to consider calling a licensed insurance agent who can review the available plans in your area.
