If you want to drop your Medicare Prescription Drug Plan (Part D) and you don't want to join a new plan, you can do so during the Open Enrollment Period, between October 15–December 7 each year. The change goes into effect January 1 of the following year.

To disenroll from a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan during Open Enrollment, you can do one of the following:

  • Call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227).
  • Mail or fax a signed written notice to the plan telling them you want to disenroll.
  • Call the plan and ask them to send you a disenrollment notice. You’ll have to complete, sign and send the notice back to the plan.

Your disenrollment will be effective on January 1 of the following year. Keep in mind you may have to pay a late enrollment penalty if you decide to join a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan in the future and you have been without creditable prescription coverage for more than 63 days.

If you want to drop your Medicare Prescription Drug Plan (Part D) because you’d like to join a new Part D plan, there is no need to tell your current plan you are leaving. Simply join the new plan during the Open Enrollment Period between October 15 – December 7 each year. Your new plan will be effective on January 1 of the following year.

Can I drop my Medicare drug plan outside the Open Enrollment Period?

You can’t drop your Medicare drug plan outside the Open Enrollment Period unless you meet certain special circumstances.

If you want to drop your Medicare Prescription Drug Plan because you now get drug coverage from an employer/union or other group health plan, make sure your coverage is creditable prescription drug coverage. Your employer is required to send you a notice of creditable coverage each year letting you know if your drug coverage is creditable.


Once enrolled, you’ll have access to more than 67,000 pharmacies. Click here to view the Alabama Network Pharmacy Directory.

You may also use a pharmacy that is not in our network. However, if you go to a pharmacy outside the network, you may have to pay more for your prescriptions, and you may have to file a claim to be reimbursed. You will be responsible for payment of any difference between the non-network pharmacy’s charge and the amount the plan allows.

Medicare beneficiaries with limited incomes may qualify for the Medicare Part D “Extra Help” program. This is also known as the Low Income Subsidy (LIS) program.

The program was designed to help people with limited incomes pay for prescription drugs. If you qualify for Medicare Part D Extra Help, you will pay less in drug premiums and copayments or coinsurance. You also will be covered during the Coverage Gap (the “Donut Hole”), and you will not have to pay late enrollment penalties. For more information on the LIS Extra Help Program, click here

If you have multiple chronic conditions you may be invited to participate in the Medication Therapy Management Program (MTM). The program is designed for those who have two (2) or more chronic conditions and take a minimum of six (6) different chronic/maintenance medications, or are likely to incur more than $3,697 in annual drug costs. The MTM program offers participants direct access to health care professionals to help them better manage their health and health care expenses. Participation is optional, and you may choose not to participate.
