Part D prescription drugs, while in the coverage gap

44% coinsurance
Covered generic drugs
35% coinsurance
Covered brand drugs

When you reach your total yearly drug cost (includes what our plan has paid and what you've paid) of $3,750, you'll enter what is called a coverage gap. At this time, you'll pay 44% of the plan's cost for covered generic drugs and 35% of the plan's cost for covered brand drugs, plus dispensing fee, until your total costs reach $5,000.

Most Medicare plans have this coverage gap (also called the "donut hole"), but not everyone will enter the coverage gap.

Part D prescription drugs, catastrophic coverage


After your yearly out-of-pocket drug costs (including drugs purchased through your retail pharmacy and through mail order) reach $5,000, you pay the greater of either: 5% of the cost OR a copay of $3.35 for generic and $8.35 for all other drugs.
