Prescription drug coverage is an Essential Health Benefit under the Affordable Care Act and prescription drug coverage must be included in all Affordable Care Act-qualified plans. Copays, coinsurance and deductibles for covered prescription drugs count against the maximum-of-pocket limit for Affordable Care Act plans. Medicare beneficiaries can enroll in a Part D Prescription Drug plan which offers coverage for outpatient drugs.
However, individuals (1) may not have Affordable Care Act or Part D Prescrtption drug coverage; (2) may have reached the donut hole in their Medicare Part D plan; (3) may be taking a drug that is not included in their plan's formulary; or (4) otherwise might qualify for some kind of assistance with their drug costs. Good Rx offers discounts for many medications. You may find that the price of a particular drug with these discounts is less than what you would pay through your prescription drug plan.
