Why did my medication move to a higher tier? Why will my medication cost more?
I am sorry you are experiencing a change in drug coverage for the upcoming plan year.
For a tier change: Humana makes tier changes to Drug Lists at the beginning of the plan year. These changes can be due to several factors. These factors include new drugs that come on the market, medical breakthroughs in the treatment of disease, manufacturing pricing, and updated federal guidelines and regulations.
Our Drug List is the list of drugs covered by your Humana Plan. Humana, like many companies, place drugs into different tiers, which have a different cost. Drugs in lower tiers generally cost you less than drugs in higher tiers. You can consult with your doctor to see if there are alternative drugs which are less expensive. Remember that generic drugs can be placed in any tier, not just the lowest tiers.
For drug costs in general: Actual drug costs are determined by the:.• Type of plan and the tier the drug is placed in• Quantity, strength and dosage of the medication• Date of fill • Drug manufacturer• Dispensing pharmacy used
