Annual Notice of Changes (ANOC)
Each fall, all Medicare Part D members are sent an Annual Notice of Changes packet. Review these materials for important changes in your prescription drug coverage for the upcoming year. All changes become effective January 1, 2014.
Inside your 2014 Annual Notice of Changes packet, you should receive:
- A summary of your 2014 copays and coinsurance, to help you compare your current and past benefits.
- Updates to premiums, deductibles, and changes to the drug list.
- Evidence of Coverage.
- A 2014 formulary (drug list ).
If you were an AARP® MedicareRx Plan insured through UnitedHealthcare® member in 2013, your Medicare prescription drug coverage will automatically continue into 2014.1 You don’t need to do anything to continue your coverage. Continue using your current member ID card to fill your prescriptions in 2014, unless the plan sends you a new member ID card.
NOTE: If you are a member of a State Pharmaceutical Assistance Program, find out if you need to reapply for the SPAP for the upcoming year.
1 If you are a low income subsidy (LIS) member, your 2014 enrollment may be in another plan. Please refer to your Annual Notice of Changes or contact UnitedHealthcare for more information.
