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:

  • 2019 AARP MedicareRX Walgreens (PDP)
  • 2019 AARP MedicareRx Preferred (PDP)
  • 2019 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.

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.
