This article was updated on: 09/10/2018
Medicare prescription drug coverage might cover Klor-Con, also known by its generic name, potassium chloride. Klor-Con is available by prescription only and comes in extended release tablets for oral administration.
Why is Klor-Con prescribed?
Doctors sometimes prescribe Klor-Con to restore potassium levels in the blood, which can decrease due to illness or as a result of taking certain medications, according to the FDA. Klor-Con or its generic equivalent, Potassium Chloride, must be taken as prescribed. If Klor-Con is prescribed for you, make sure you understand exactly how and when to take this drug by talking with your doctor.
How does Medicare cover Klor-Con?
Medicare Prescription Drug Plans contract with Medicare. These plans vary by location and may differ by state, zip code and county. Each of these plans has a formulary, which is a specific list of drugs that the plan covers. Each Medicare Prescription Drug Plan has a different formulary, so make sure the plan you choose has Klor-Con in its formulary. The formulary may change at any time. You will receive notice from your plan when necessary.
If your Medicare Prescription Drug Plan or Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plan doesn’t cover Klor-Con, it might cover the generic drug Potassium Chloride. If your plan doesn’t cover Klor-Con or the generic drug, you may be able to request an exception with the prescription drug plan to get Klor-Con covered.
