Understanding the Medicare Phases

Deductible phase: The annual amount you pay before your plan starts paying. Your deductible is based on the plan type selected.

Initial coverage phase (ICP) This phase starts after you have met your deductible and continues until you and your plan have spent a total of $4660 in 2023. Your co-pay is based on the formulary tier.

Coverage Gap (donut hole) What you pay in the coverage gap for drugs on your plan’s formulary. The most you pay for each prescription while in the coverage gap is 25%.

Items that count towards the coverage gap:

  • Your yearly deductible, coinsurance, and copayments
  • The discount you get on brand-name drugs in the coverage gap            
  • What you pay in the coverage gap

Items that don’t count towards the coverage gap

  • The drug plan premium
  • Pharmacy dispensing fee
  • What you pay for drugs that are NOT covered

Catastrophic coverage phase The catastrophic phase starts when you exit the coverage gap and lasts until the end of the calendar year
