Medco's 2010 Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Helps People Take an Active Part in Lowering Prescription Costs
Date:10/7/2009

to thousands of medications.

All of these plans have access to a network of more than 58,000 pharmacies nationwide as well as access to Medco's award-winning mail-order pharmacy.

Seniors are becoming savvier about how to save money on prescription drugs. A 2008 Medco survey reported that 66 percent of older Americans switched from a brand drug to a generic over a 12-month period and 54 percent have asked their doctor or pharmacist about generic alternatives.(i)

"In 2008, according to a Medco-sponsored survey, more than two-thirds of respondents were aware of the coverage gap," said Daschner. "The majority of those surveyed said that Medco had provided them with the information they needed to help delay the "gap."(ii) We understand that seniors are keenly interested in taking an active role in healthcare decisions and Medco's PDP options support that."

The following services are available to all Medco Medicare Prescription Plan members:

  • Access to Medicare Advisors who are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and can help beneficiaries identify and understand lower-cost medication options.
  • Extensive Coverage Gap communications - letters, web messaging and phone calls - that inform members about their proximity to the coverage gap and educate members about how to use their mail-order benefit and generics to help delay reaching the Coverage Gap and lower their overall annual prescription costs.
  • Mail-order pharmacies that are designed for swift and accurate dispensing.
  • Access to specially trained pharmacists who focus their practice on treating a specific chronic condition, such as diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, and pulmonary conditions, so they're better equipped to identify a potential safety issue and counsel patients on how to stay healthy.

All three plan design options within Medco's PDP are offered nationally in 35 Medicare
