I’M ALREADY COVERED, WHY DO I NEED TO CHECK?
Because Medicare plans can make changes to their lists of covered drugs during the course of a year.
While 9 out of 10 Medicare patients currently have coverage for Toujeo or Lantus, it’s important to check and see if your plan will continue to cover your Toujeo or Lantus prescription, and other prescription medications you take, before the annual enrollment deadline of December 7, 2017.
HOW DO I CHECK?
This may take a few minutes, but checking that the plan you choose covers your medicines in 2018 is important.
To get started, have your red, white and blue Medicare card available, if you have one. You may need:
- Your Medicare claim number and effective date, from the front of your card
- A list of your current prescription medications
- Visit the Medicare Plan Finder https://www.medicare.gov/find-a-plan and enter your information in the “Personalized Search” section.
- Follow the directions to determine if your current plan is still listed as one that provides prescription coverage for your prescription medicines, including Toujeo or Lantus and other prescription medication you take. You can also see a full list of plans in your area and compare their 2018 coverage of your current prescription medications. No action is necessary if you do not wish to change your current plan.
