Make the Most of Your Plan Choice

To maximize your benefits from either of MHI’s Part D plans, look into these potential money-saving steps:

  • Use a pharmacy in MHI’s Part-D network. In-network pharmacies will ensure your medications will be available at the lowest price. Click here to view the Alabama Network Pharmacy Directory.

  • Talk to your doctor and your pharmacist about the possibility of  replacing your brand name drugs with preferred generic drugs. These will cost you the least. If preferred generic drugs are not appropriate or available, investigate generics, even if they’re not part of MHI’s preferred list.

  • See if you qualify for Medicare’s Extra Help program. 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.

  • See if you qualify for MHI’s Medication Therapy Management Program (MTM). Depending on your health conditions and circumstances, you may be invited to participate in a program designed for your specific health and pharmacy needs. Participation is optional, and you may choose not to participate. However, this program offers participants direct access to additional qualified resources and health care professionals to help them better manage their health and health care expenses.

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.
