A coverage determination (also known as a coverage decision) is a decision about whether a drug prescribed for you is covered by the plan and the amount, if any, you are required to pay for the prescription. In general, if you bring your prescription to a pharmacy and the pharmacy tells you the prescription is not covered under your plan, that is not a coverage determination. You need to call or write to your plan to ask for a formal decision about the coverage.
Here are examples of coverage decisions you ask us to make about your Part D drugs:
You ask us to make an exception, including:
You ask us whether a drug is covered for you and whether you satisfy any applicable coverage rules. (For example, when your drug is on the plan’s List of Covered Drugs but we require you to get approval from us before we will cover it for you.)
You ask us to pay for a prescription drug you already bought. This is a request for a coverage decision about payment.
If you disagree with a coverage decision we have made, you can appeal our decision. For more information regarding the coverage determination process please reference the below sections in your Evidence of Coverage.

Because your Medicare drug plan has denied coverage of, or payment for, a prescription drug you requested, you have the right to ask for a redetermination (appeal). You may use the form below to request a redetermination of our initial decision. You have 60 days from the date of the plan’s initial denial notice to ask for a redetermination. Please complete the Request for Reconsideration of Medicare Prescription Drug Denial form and mail or fax it to:
