2018 Part D Coverage


We make understanding the cost of your medications simple. Each drug we cover is assigned a tier. How much you pay at the pharmacy will depend on which tier your medication falls under. If your prescriptions aren't in our Formulary or the quantity is limited, learn how we work with your doctor to find an alternate medication.

Part D Plan Highlights

Participating Pharmacies

We want filling and picking up your prescriptions to be convenient for you. Whether you want a 30-day supply or a 90-day supply, our large network of pharmacies means there’s sure to be a pharmacy near you. You can also fill your 90-day prescription using our mail order pharmacy service, WellDyneRx.

If you’re a resident of a long-term care facility, you can get a 31-day supply of medications from your facility’s pharmacy.

Generally, your prescriptions will need to be filled with one of our partners; however, we know there are times where circumstances won't allow this. If you become ill while traveling, you’re still able to pick up a 30-day supply of your prescription. You will be responsible for your co-payment or coinsurance, as well as the cost difference between the in-network and out-of-network pharmacy. Some restrictions may apply.

Medication Review

Our pharmacists are available to review your current medications and identify potential drug interactions or more cost-effective alternatives. To learn more, please contact us at 970-255-5677 or toll free 877-288-5773, or send us an email.

Prior Authorization

There are a handful of medications that you will need to get prior authorization for before we’re able to cover them. Your doctor will need to submit this request to us on your behalf.

Step Therapy

We do everything we can to keep our coverage affordable. Because of this, we might ask you to try a certain medication for your condition. If that drug isn’t a good fit, we’ll likely be able to cover the other medication.

If you decide not to enroll in a Part D plan when you are first eligible, you may pay a penalty to join at a later time.

Extra Help for Prescription Drug Costs

Prescriptions can be expensive. That's why there's the Extra Help program available through the government for qualified Medicare beneficiaries. To qualify, a person must be receiving Medicare, have limited resources and income, and reside in one of the 50 states or the District of Columbia.

To see if you qualify or for more information, call Social Security at 800-772-1213 (TTY: 800-325-0778) or visit their website.

Medication Therapy Management

Managing your prescriptions is important. RMHP offers a Medication Therapy Management (MTM) program to assist Members in optimizing effectiveness of prescription drugs. MTM programs are available to all Medicare Part D Members who meet the limited criteria. This no cost program combines the services of RMHP clinical pharmacists and Colorado registered pharmacists. MTM services are voluntary and the program is not considered a benefit of your plan. 

MTM is an annual program requiring qualification each calendar year. Members previously enrolled in the MTM program must meet current year qualifications to carry over to the new year.

To qualify for 2017 MTM services, all of the following must be met:

  • You must be enrolled in a Part D plan
  • You must have three chronic diseases from the list below:
    • Hypertension
    • Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)
    • Diabetes
    • Dyslipidemia/Hyperlipidemia (high blood cholesterol)
    • Chronic Respiratory Disease/Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
    • Bone Disease – Osteoporosis
    • Bone Disease – Osteoarthritis
    • Bone Disease – Rheumatoid Arthritis
    • Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)
    • Alzheimer’s Disease
    • Cerebrovascular Disease (CVD)
    • Cerebrovascular Disease (Stroke)
  • You must be taking five or more Part D covered drugs (any Part D drug qualifies)
  • You must have Part D medication costs likely to exceed Part D costs of $3,919 or greater for the calendar year

If you are Eligible

Part D members are checked monthly for eligibility. Once qualification is met, the member will receive a letter telling them they are eligible for the program and offering a comprehensive medication review (CMR). Once enrolled in the program, a member remains eligible for the entire year regardless of changes to medications, diseases, or medication costs. 

An RMHP pharmacist will contact Members in the program via phone or letter. To conduct a CMR, the pharmacist must speak to the Member, which usually takes 15 to 30 minutes. For targeted medication reviews (TMR), the pharmacist will review medication history but will not usually call the Member. Once the CMR or TMR is finished, a letter with medication recommendations is mailed to the address on record or address given during the review.

For more information about the MTM program, please contact Customer Service at 970-244-7912 or 888-282-1420 (TTY: 711)
