About 1,750 Medicare Rx Plans Join Fixed-Insulin-Copay Demo

The Trump administration on May 26 shared new details about a program that offers diabetic seniors access to a variety of insulin products for a maximum $35-per-month copay.

More than 88 health insurers offering about 1,750 standalone Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plans (PDPs) and Medicare Advantage plans with prescription drug coverage (MA-PDs) have now applied to participate in the Part D Senior Savings Model, which CMS unveiled in mid-March (RDB 3/26/20, p. 5). Medicare beneficiaries in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico will be able to enroll in a participating plan during the Medicare open enrollment period that lasts from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7, 2020, for Part D coverage that begins on Jan. 1, 2021.
