About this plan

This is our middle-of-the-road plan. It has a higher monthly payment, but it covers more drugs. It works best for those who take medications regularly and want a low Part D plan deductible. This plan features:

  • $50 annual deductible

  • Preferred pharmacy copays as low as $2

  • Prescription drug coverage while traveling within the U.S.

  • The convenience of 90-day prescriptions and a mail-order program

  • A pharmacy network that includes major drugstore chains and most of Michigan's retail pharmacies.

Is this plan for you?

If you take both generic and brand prescription drugs and want a plan with a $50 deductible, this plan could be right for you. You can pair this plan with:

  • Original Medicare
  • A Medicare Supplement plan
  • An employer or group Medicare plan that doesn't include prescription drug coverage


You can enroll in this plan if you live anywhere in Michigan at least six months of the year. Learn how to find a pharmacy near you that's within our network.
