|An Advocate’s Guide to Appealing|
Prescription Drug Denials
When: Thursday, August 19, 2021, at 11:00-12:00 P.T./2:00-3:00 E.T.
Medicare Part D, the prescription drug benefit, is the part of Medicare that covers most outpatient prescription drugs. Part D prescription drug plans are offered through private insurance companies that make initial decisions at the pharmacy about whether a beneficiary’s prescription will be covered. If a beneficiary’s Part D plan denies payment for a prescription, they have the right to appeal that decision. In this training, you will learn about how to help beneficiaries through the Part D appeals process. The ability to successfully navigate these appeals is vital to ensuring affordable access to prescription medications for millions of beneficiaries.
Participants will learn to:
1. Identify reasons why coverage for a prescription may have been denied;
2. Help Medicare beneficiaries through the appeals process; and
3. Brainstorm strategies for accessing prescription drugs outside of the appeals process.
