Plans with medication therapy management
Required by the new Medicare law. All Part D prescription drug plans include drug therapy management for beneficiaries with multiple chronic conditions and high drug costs.
Enrollment rates vary widely by Part D plan. About 90 percent of Part D beneficiaries had contracts that required at least three chronic conditions. About half of the beneficiaries had contracts that required a certain number of Part D drugs for each of these conditions. Most Part D beneficiaries had contracts that required them to take eight drugs, and about 70 percent needed more than three drugs.
Enrollment rates vary widely among sponsors. Some have much lower enrollment rates than others. The MA-PD contract population was also significantly smaller than the PDP, with many beneficiaries showing less than one chronic condition. Beneficiaries in MA-PD contracts were also more likely to be in contracts that restricted enrollment based on specific drug classes.
Benefits of nationwide Medicare plans include an integrated healthcare center with drug therapy management. This includes medical and Part D prescription drug coverage. Some of these schemes also coordinate the delivery of their additional benefits. While some patients prefer to coordinate their health care with a single plan administrator. Others are happy to get all their services from one place.
By 2022, Medicare beneficiaries will have several stand-alone PDPs in each state. This means that a beneficiary living in New York will have up to 19 different MA-PDs. In Arizona, the number of MA-PDs would be nearly double that. Beneficiaries are unlikely to be stuck with a single MA-PD if they do not want to change their medications. They may choose to enroll in a PDP with a separate MA-PD.
Make an informed decision about your healthcare journey by considering the positive nationwide Medicare reviews associated with plans that feature medication therapy management.
