Annual Notice of Changes (ANOC)
Each fall, all Medicare Part D members are sent an Annual Notice of Changes packet. Review these materials for important changes in your prescription drug coverage for the upcoming year. All changes become effective January 1, 2016.
Inside your 2016 Annual Notice of Changes packet, you will find:
- A summary of your 2016 co-pays and co-insurance, to help you compare your current and past benefits.
- Updates to premiums, deductibles, and changes to the drug list.
- Evidence of Coverage.
- A 2016 formulary (drug list ). Note: The Formulary may change at any time. You will receive notice when necessary.
If you were an AARP® MedicareRx Plan, insured through UnitedHealthcare, member in 2015, your Medicare prescription drug coverage will automatically continue into 2016.1 You don't need to do anything to continue your coverage. Continue using your current member ID card to fill your prescriptions in 2016, unless the plan sends you a new member ID card.
NOTE: If you are a member of a State Pharmaceutical Assistance Program, find out if you need to reapply for the SPAP for the upcoming year.
