Due to Coronavirus in the United States HHS Secretary Alex M. Azar declared a Public Health Emergency.
Your health and safety are our primary concerns and if you leave your home to avoid this emergency, we do not want any undue barriers to keep you from getting your medication or to seeing a medical professional.
For our members, we have removed the refill too soon edits for your Part D Prescription Drugs, and removed the out-of-network authorization requirements for out-of-network providers. You must still use Medicare certified facilities and providers.
Prior authorization for medical services or medication may still be needed for medical necessity. This change is in effect until the emergency notice is closed or April 27, 2020 whichever is earlier.
This guide will give you a solid foundation for understanding the basics of Medicare and some of the options available to you as a new Medicare recipient. If you have any questions or need assistance, let us help. It’s why we’re here.
