Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug Plans
AR CA CT FL GA HI IL KY LA MS NC NJ NY SC TN TX
WellCare Health Plans focuses exclusively on government-sponsored programs like Medicare and Medicaid. WellCare currently offers HMO, HMO-POS, PPO, and Special Needs Plans (SNPs).
WellCare SNP members can be sure of one thing: the quality of their healthcare is top priority. WellCare covers everything that Original Medicare covers and on top of that, other benefits have been added to help stay healthy. For instance, when urgent health care is needed, a conversation with nurses on call can take place. Nurse Advice Line is open 24/7 to help with every health question or concern.
Most Medicare Advantage plans include a Prescription Drug Plan (PDP); Medicare Advantage-only plans never include prescription drug coverage. Dual Eligible Special Needs Plans (DE-SNP) must provide Medicare prescription drug coverage.

No deductible and $0 co-payments on Tier 1 drugs on the Extra Plan beginning day one.

Zero dollar or low co-payments for Tier 1 drugs at network retail pharmacies. More than 60,000 network pharmacies nationwide.
Enrolling in a stand-alone PDP will not automatically disenroll you from a Private-Fee-for-Service (PFFS) plan that does not include prescription drug coverage, a Medicare Medical Savings Account (MSA) plan or an 1876 Cost plan. If enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan that includes prescription drug coverage; you will be automatically disenrolled from the plan by joining a PDP.
