Stay current with Part D formulary changes
A Medicare Part D formulary is the most important aspect of a Medicare Rx plan and should be the first place you start after you have found a plan with an affordable premium. The Rx formulary is the list of drugs covered by a Rx plan.
The formulary is important because you will be able to review not only that your drugs are covered but also which tier they are placed in. Tier placement will determine your out-of-pocket cost for individual medications.
The AARP Medicare Rx website includes the following information about formulary changes:
- Plan formularies
- Formulary deletion updates
- Formulary Additions update
- Prior authorization criteria
- Step therapy criteria
It’s best to review this information online as a printed AARP Medicare Rx formulary may be out of date. Visit aarpmedicarerx.com to access these resources so you can ensure that you are choosing the right RX plan for your needs.
