Coverage and cost
What is a prescription drug plan?
A prescription drug plan, or pharmacy plan, is a part of your health care coverage. Prescription medicines can be expensive. When you have pharmacy coverage - or prescription drug coverage - your pharmacy plan may pay a portion of the costs of prescriptions your doctor or other health care professionals prescribe for you. These medicines can be something you take for only a short while, like an antibiotic to treat an infection. They can also be something that you take for a longer time, like medicine to treat high blood pressure, or insulin to treat diabetes.
