3 01 Complete drug list The AARP MedicareRx Saver Plus plan is designed to help you manage your prescription drug costs. An important part of this is giving you choices so you and your doctor can choose the best course of treatment for you. A formulary is a list of the drugs covered by a Part D plan in consultation with a team of health care providers, which represents the prescription therapies believed to be a necessary part of a quality treatment program. The plan will generally cover the drugs listed in the formulary as long as the drug is medically necessary, the prescription is filled at a plan network pharmacy and other plan rules are followed. For more information on how to fill your prescriptions, please review your Evidence of Coverage. With your doctor s help, you can use this drug list as a tool to choose the drugs that work best for you and to find lower-cost drugs, if needed. Using the drug list There are two ways to find your prescription drugs in this complete drug list: 1. Alphabetical list (index): Turn to the Index of covered drugs section, which begins on page 6, to see the list of drug names in alphabetical order.. Medical condition: Turn to the Covered drugs by category section, which begins on page 8, to look for drug names based on your medical conditions. For example, if you want to find drugs used to treat high cholesterol, go to the Cardiovascular s category and look under Cholesterol Control s. Is it a generic or brand name drug? The drug list shows brand name drugs in bold type (for example, Crestor) and generic drugs in plain type (for example, Simvastatin). More information about your drug Some drugs have requirements or limits. Please see the and limits section on page for more information on drugs you may use. This document is a complete list of covered drugs. If your drug is not included in this drug list, you should contact UnitedHealthcare Customer Service to ask if it s covered, or go to to look it up online. If you learn that the plan does not cover your drug, you have two options: 1. You can ask UnitedHealthcare Customer Service for a list of similar drugs that are covered by the plan. When you receive the list, show it to your doctor and ask him or her to prescribe a similar drug that is covered by the plan.. You can ask the plan to make an exception and cover your drug. See the Coverage decisions section on page 5 for information about how to request an exception. 1
4 tiers and drug payment stages The amount you pay for a covered drug will depend on: Your drug payment stage. The plan has different stages of drug coverage. When you fill a prescription, the amount you pay depends on the stage you re in. The drug tier for your drug. Each covered drug is in one of five drug tiers. Each tier has a different copay or coinsurance amount. The chart below shows the differences between the tiers. For more information about drug payment stages and copay or coinsurance amounts for each tier, please refer to the plan s Evidence of Coverage (EOC). If you qualify for extra help If you qualify for extra help for your prescription drugs, your copays and coinsurance may be lower. Members who qualify for extra help will receive the Evidence of Coverage Rider for People Who Get Extra Help Paying for Prescription s (LIS Rider). Please read it to find out what your costs are. You can also contact UnitedHealthcare Customer Service. Copay or Coinsurance 1: Preferred generic Lowest copay : Non-preferred generic Low copay : Preferred brand Medium copay : Non-preferred brand Highest copay 5: Specialty tier Coinsurance Includes Lower-cost, commonly used generic drugs. Most generic drugs. Many common brand name drugs, called preferred brands, and some higher cost generic drugs. Non preferred generic and non-preferred brand name drugs. Unique and/or very high cost drugs. Helpful Tips Use 1 drugs for the lowest out of-pocket costs. Use drugs, instead of or, to help reduce your out-of-pocket costs. Many drugs have lower cost options in 1 or. Ask your doctor if they could work for you. Many drugs have lower-cost options in 1, or. Ask your doctor if you can switch to one of these drugs to help reduce your out of-pocket costs. You pay a percentage of the total drug cost, called coinsurance.
5 Generic drugs The plan covers both brand name and generic drugs. The Food and Administration (FDA) requires a generic drug to have the same active ingredient as the brand name drug. Using generic drugs, whether preferred or non-preferred, may save you money on your copays or coinsurance and may help you stay out of the coverage gap if you have one. To pay less out of pocket, talk with your doctor to see if any of the brand name drugs you take have generic versions. While most generics are in of the drug list, some generics can be found in 1. While generic drugs usually cost less than brand name drugs, newly available generic drugs can be expensive so they may be in, or of the drug list. Vaccines The plan covers a number of Part D vaccines. Our coverage may include the cost of both the vaccine medication and the administration of the vaccine shot. Some vaccines, like those for the flu and pneumonia, may be covered by Medicare Part B (doctor and outpatient health care). For the best coverage, the plan recommends that you get vaccines at a network pharmacy if your state allows it. The administration fee likely will be lower at a network pharmacy than at your doctor s office. You also won t have to fill out a form to get paid back (reimbursed). If the administration fee is less than $0, you will pay only your copay or coinsurance amount. If it is more than $0, you will pay the extra amount. If you get your vaccines at your doctor s office, you will pay the entire cost of the vaccine and administration fee to your doctor. You will have to submit a form to the plan to get reimbursed. You will pay your copay or coinsurance amount, plus the difference between $0 and the administration fee charged by your doctor. Please see your Evidence of Coverage for more information about vaccines and their costs. To make sure a recommended vaccine is covered or to request a reimbursement form, call UnitedHealthcare Customer Service at , TTY 711. Or visit to download a reimbursement form.
6 and limits Some of the plan s drugs have requirements or limits to help ensure safe, effective and affordable use. If your drug has any requirements or limits, there will be a code(s) in the & Limits column of the drug list starting on page 8. The codes and what they mean are shown below. Visit for more information. You and your doctor may ask the plan for an exception to the requirement and/or limit for your drug. See the Coverage decisions section on the next page or see your Evidence of Coverage to learn more. If you do not get prior approval from the plan for a drug with a requirement or limit, you may be responsible for paying the full cost of the drug. B/D LA PA ST Medicare Part B or Part D Depending on how this drug is used, it may be covered by either Medicare Part B (doctor and outpatient health care) or Medicare Part D (prescription drugs). Your doctor may need to provide the plan with more information about how this drug will be used to make sure it s correctly covered by Medicare. Limited access s are considered limited access if the FDA says the drug can be given out only by certain facilities or doctors. These drugs may require extra handling, provider coordination or patient education that can t be done at a network pharmacy. Prior authorization The plan requires you or your doctor to get prior authorization for certain drugs. This means the plan needs more information from your doctor to make sure the drug is being used correctly for a medical condition covered by Medicare. If you don t get approval, the plan may not cover the drug. Step therapy There are effective, lower-cost drugs that treat the same medical condition as this drug. You may be required to try one or more of these other drugs before the plan will cover your drug. If you have already tried other drugs or your doctor thinks they are not right for you, you or your doctor can ask the plan to cover this drug. For more information about requirements and limits, call UnitedHealthcare Customer Service at , TTY 711.
7 Coverage decisions At times you may need to ask for drug coverage that s not normally provided by the plan. When you do, the plan will consider your request and respond with a coverage decision (coverage determination). Examples of coverage decisions you may ask for include: Asking the plan to pay you back for the cost of a drug you bought at an out of network pharmacy. Asking for an exception to the plan s coverage rules. How to request an exception You can ask the plan to make an exception to the coverage rules. There are several types of exceptions that you can ask the plan to make. You can ask the plan to cover your drug even if it is not on the formulary (formulary exception). You can ask the plan to waive coverage restrictions or limits on your drug (utilization exception). For example, for certain drugs, the plan limits the amount of the drug that it will cover. You can ask the plan to provide a higher level of coverage for your drug (tier exception). If your drug is in the non-preferred tier, you can ask the plan to cover it at the cost-sharing amount that applies to drugs in the preferred tier instead. This would lower the amount you must pay for your drug. Please note, if we grant your request to cover a drug that is not in the plan s formulary, you may not ask us to provide a higher level of coverage for the drug. exceptions are not available for drugs in the specialty tier. Generally, the plan will only approve your request for an exception if the alternative drugs included in the plan s formulary, the lower-tiered drug or additional utilization restrictions would not be as effective in treating your condition and/or would cause you to have adverse medical effects. Asking for a coverage decision You (or your authorized representative) and your doctor can ask for an initial coverage decision by calling UnitedHealthcare Customer Service at , TTY 711. When you are requesting a formulary, tiering or utilization restriction exception, your prescriber or physician should submit a statement supporting your request. See your Evidence of Coverage for more information. Receiving a coverage decision Generally, the plan will make a coverage decision within 7 hours after receiving your prescribing physician s statement. You can request an expedited, or fast, decision if you or your doctor believe your health requires it. If the plan agrees to a fast decision, you will receive a decision within hours after the plan receives your prescriber s or prescribing physician s supporting statement. 5
8 list changes The plan recognizes that drug list stability is very important to you. That is why the plan tries to make as few changes to the drug list as possible during the plan year. From time to time, drug list changes may be necessary for safety or other reasons. The drug list may change throughout the year when the plan: Adds a new drug. Removes a drug. Changes the requirements or limits for a drug. Moves a drug to a lower-cost tier. Moves a drug to a higher-cost tier. If the FDA declares a drug to be unsafe or the drug s manufacturer removes the drug from the market, the plan will immediately remove the drug from the drug list and inform affected members. If a drug moves to a higher cost tier or undergoes some other change, the plan will inform affected members at least 60 days before the change or at the time the member requests a refill of the drug, at which time the member will receive a 60-day supply of the drug. Generally, if you are taking a drug on the 01 drug list that was covered at the beginning of the year, the plan will not remove the drug from the drug list or move a drug to a higher tier during the 01 coverage year except when a new, less expensive generic equivalent drug becomes available (for example, the brand name drug moves to a higher tier and the less expensive drug is on the lower tier), or when new information about the safety or effectiveness of a drug is released. Other types of changes, such as removing a drug from the drug list, will not affect members who are currently taking the drug. It will remain available at the same cost-sharing for those members taking it for the remainder of the coverage year. It is important that you have continued access for the remainder of the coverage year to the list of drugs that were available when you chose the plan, except for cases in which you can save additional money or your safety is a concern. If there are changes to the drug list such as regular or necessary updates, members may see information in the Explanation of Benefits statement, member newsletters or other member mailings. If there are changes to the drug list outside of regular or necessary updates, members may receive a special mailing. The plan website also has updated information. 6
9 Transition supply process New or continuing members As a new or continuing member in the plan, you may be taking drugs that are not on the formulary. Or you may be taking a drug that is on the formulary but your ability to get it is limited. For example, you may need prior authorization before you can fill your prescription. You should talk to your doctor to decide if you should switch to an appropriate drug that the plan covers, or request a formulary exception so that the plan will cover the drug you take. While you talk to your doctor to determine the right course of action for you, the plan may cover your drug in certain cases during the first 90 days you are a member of the plan. For each of your drugs that is not on the formulary, or if your ability to get your drugs is limited, the plan will cover a temporary 1-day supply (unless you have a prescription written for fewer days) when you go to a network pharmacy. After your first 1-day supply, the plan will not pay for these drugs, even if you have been a member of the plan less than 90 days. Long-term care facility residents If you re a resident of a long-term care facility, the plan will allow you to refill your prescription until we have provided you with a 91- and up to a 98-day transition supply of the drug consistent with dispensing increment (unless your prescription is for fewer days). The plan will also cover one or more refills for the first 90 days of your membership. If you need a drug that s not on the drug list or if you have limited ability to get your drugs but you are past the first 90 days of your plan membership, the plan will cover a 1-day emergency supply of the drug (unless your prescription is for fewer days) while you request a formulary exception. Other transitions You may have an unplanned transition, like a hospital discharge or a change in your level of care, after the first 90 days of your plan membership. If this happens and your doctor prescribes a drug that s not on the drug list, or if it s difficult for you to get your drugs, you are required to use the plan s exception process. You may ask for a one-time emergency supply of up to 1 days to give you time to talk to your doctor about other treatment options or to try to get a formulary exception.
