Part D is a Medicare plan that covers prescription drugs. A Part D plan is optional for people who are Medicare-eligible. Part D plans are offered by various insurance companies under the government's rules and guidelines. People with Part D must pay a monthly premium for this coverage, and the amount of the premium will vary from one company to the next. At Farm Bureau Health Plans, we always want to point you in the right direction when it comes to your health care coverage. If you are a Medicare beneficiary of Part A and/ or B then considering the Part D prescription drug plan is the logical next step. We think it's important to provide you the information you need to select a Part D plan that best suits your needs and your budget.

Farm Bureau Health Plans offers two Part D prescription drug plans that provide added layers of protection from the high cost of prescription drug needs. This coverage is available in all counties in Tennessee.

  • Choice of having a deductible

You may also use a pharmacy that is not in our network. However, if you go to a pharmacy outside the network, you may have to pay more for your prescriptions, and you may have to file a claim to be reimbursed. You will be responsible for payment of any difference between the non-network pharmacy’s charge and the amount the plan allows.

Medicare beneficiaries with limited incomes may qualify for the Medicare Part D “Extra Help” program. This is also known as the Low Income Subsidy (LIS) program. 

The program was designed to help people with limited incomes pay for prescription drugs. If you qualify for Medicare Part D Extra Help, you will pay less in drug premiums and copayments or coinsurance. You also will be covered during the Coverage Gap (the “Donut Hole”), and you will not have to pay late enrollment penalties. For more information on the LIS Extra Help Program, click here.

If you have multiple chronic conditions you may be invited to participate in the Medication Therapy Management Program (MTM). The program is designed for those who have three or more chronic conditions and are likely to incur more than $3,919 (in 2017) and $3,697 (in 2018) in annual drug costs. The MTM program offers participants direct access to health care professionals to help them better manage their health and health care expenses. Participation is optional, and you may choose not to participate.
