Here are the highlights for the CMS defined Standard Benefit Plan for 2021. The “Standard Benefit Plan” is the minimum allowable plan to be offered.
The amount you pay before a plan covers your prescription drug costs.
During this stage, the plan pays its share of the cost and you pay your share. You are in this stage until your payments and the plan’s payments total $4,130 for the year.
When your drug costs and plan payment for the year reach $4,130, you enter the Coverage Gap Stage (donut hole). You will pay 25% of the cost for formulary brand-name and generic drugs. You will stay in this stage until your out-of-pocket costs for the year reach $6,550.
After your out-of-pocket costs for prescription drugs reach $6,550, the plan will pay most of your drug costs for the rest of the year. You will pay either 5% of the cost of the drug, or a co-pay of $3.70 for generic drugs or $9.20 for all other drugs.
