Health Maintenance Organization (HMO), Preferred Provider Organization (PPO*), Medicare Savings Account (MSA), Private Fee-For-Service (PFFS), and Special Needs Programs are also examples of Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plans (SNP). Both of these plans which have its own set of guidelines on how you should get treatment. When it comes to medical services, HMO programs, for example, encourage enrollees to remain within the network of providers. If you go to an out-of-network provider, you can have to pay the entire cost of the service (with the exception of emergency care).

Question:
Is there a limit on the number or type of prescription drugs a Medicare Part D drug plan will cover in a given year?
Answer:
No, your Part D package does not have a cap on the amount of prescriptions you can fill. However, no plan covers all medications, and in some cases, policies can restrict the number of drugs that can be filled under a single prescription. In addition, some medications are not covered by Medicare Part D.
