MD Care Healthplan covers both brand name drugs and generic drugs. Generic drugs have the same active-ingredient formula as a brand name drug. Generic drugs usually cost less than brand name drugs and are rated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be as safe and effective as brand name drugs.
If you get extra help from Medicare to help pay for your Medicare prescription drug plan costs, copays and co-insurance may vary based on the level of Extra help that you may receive. Please contact the plan for more details.
