More drug savings coming through 2020

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.

Note

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)
