Coverage Gap

After your total yearly drug costs reach $2,850, you receive limited coverage by the plan on certain drugs. For covered generics, you pay 72% of the plan's costs. For covered brand drugs, you pay no more than 47.5% of the plan's costs (excluding dispensing fees)

Catastrophic Coverage

After your yearly out-of-pocket drug costs reach $4,550, you pay the greater of:
$2.55 copay for generics or brand drugs treated like generic drugs
$6.35 copay for all other drugs; or 5% of the cost

As a Medicare PPO Blue ValueRx plan member, you get additional benefits beyond Original Medicare, such as:

  • Coverage for routine hearing exams, vision care, and preventive dental

  • Allowance toward eyewear

  • Prevention and wellness programs

  • Worldwide coverage for emergency care

Medicare PPO Blue ValueRx also offers Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage. This makes it easy for you to get your medical and prescription benefits from one plan. See Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug Coverage for more information.
