The percentage you save in the coverage gap (Medicare prescription drug coverage) will increase each year through 2020. In addition, you'll continue to get the 65% discount on covered brand-name prescription drugs.
By 2020, you'll pay no more than 25% for covered brand-name and generic drugs during the gap. This is the same percentage you pay:
- From the time you meet the deductible (if your plan has one)
- Until you reach the out-of-pocket spending limit (up to $5,000 in 2018)
