You may be able to get Extra Help to pay for your prescription drug premiums and costs. To see if you qualify for Extra Help, call: 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048, 24 hours a day/7 days a week; The Social Security Office at 1-800-772-1213 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. TTY users should call 1-800-325-0778; or Your State Medicaid Office. 

You must receive your care from a network provider. 

In most cases, care you receive from an out-of-network provider (a provider who is not part of plan’s network) will not be covered. There are four exceptions:

• The plan covers emergency care or urgently needed services that you get from an out-of-network provider.

• If you need medical care that Medicare requires our plan to cover and the providers in our network cannot provide this care, you can get this care from an out-of-network provider with our prior approval. In this situation with our approval, you will pay the same as you would pay if you got the care from a network provider.

• The plan covers kidney dialysis services that you get at a Medicare-certified dialysis facility when you are temporarily outside the plan’s service area.

• Our plan offers a Point of Service (POS) option for services associated with routine eyewear. For lenses and frames or contacts (except after cataract surgery), you may use a qualified provider of your choice.

*The late enrollment penalty is an amount that is added to your Part D premium. You may owe a monthly late enrollment penalty if at any time after your initial enrollment period is over, there is a period of 63 or more days in a row when you don’t have Part D or other creditable prescription drug coverage. If you get "Extra Help" you do not pay a late enrollment penalty.
