Creditable Coverage

Refers to prescription drug coverage that offers benefits the same as or better than coverage available through Medicare.

Tier 1: Lowest Copay

Most generic drugs are included in this tier. Use Tier 1 drugs for the lowest out-of-pocket costs.

Tier 2: Medium Copay

This tier includes many common brand-name drugs, called preferred brands, and some higher-cost generic drugs. Many Tier 2 drugs have lower-cost options in Tier 1. Ask your doctor if they could work for you.

Tier 3: Highest Copay

Drugs in this tier include non-preferred generic and non-preferred brand-name drugs. Many Tier 3 drugs have lower-cost options in Tiers 1 and 2. Ask your doctor if you can switch to one of these drugs to help reduce your out-of-pocket costs.

Drug List tool tip

A list of drugs covered by your Medicare Part D plan. A drug list may also be referred to as a covered prescription drugs list (CML), a preferred drug list (PDL), a select drug list or a formulary. These drugs are dispensed through participating network pharmacies to covered members. Drug lists may differ between Medicare prescription drug plans.


Carefully weigh the differences in drug lists against the plan costs and other features when choosing a plan that may best meet your needs. A drug list may change during the year.

Coverage Gap tool tip:

This is Stage 3 of the 4 drug payment stages for a Medicare prescription drug plan. It begins after the amount you and the plan together have paid your drugs (excluding premiums) since January 1 reaches $2,840.

During the coverage gap, you will never pay more than 93% of the cost of generic drugs or about 50% of the cost of most brand-name drugs for any drug tier until you reach $4,550 in out-of-pocket costs. Out-of-pocket costs include the total payments that are made by you or others on your behalf for your covered prescription drugs during the plan year. This includes deductible payments (if applicable), copays, coinsurance and payments made during the coverage gap. Premiums do not count toward out-of-pocket costs.

If you're an AARP® MedicareRx Enhanced plan member, your plan provides limited coverage in the coverage gap.

Always use your Medicare Part D member ID card during the coverage gap to get the plan's discounted drug rates. The money you spend using your card counts toward your out-of-pocket costs.

Out-of-Pocket Costs:

The total payments made by you or others on your behalf for your covered prescription drugs during the plan year. This includes deductible payments (if applicable), copays, coinsurance and payments made in the coverage gap. Premiums do not count toward out-of-pocket costs.

Premium (or monthly premium)

The monthly fee you pay for Medicare coverage.

Deductible/annual deductible

The amount you must pay for health care before Medicare or the plan begins to pay.

Deductible/Annual deductible
