Medicare and Viagra

Last Updated : 09/12/20182 min read

Original Medicare, Part A and Part B, provides limited coverage of prescription drugs. Some drugs, like Viagra, aren’t covered by Original Medicare.

If you would like coverage for your medications, you can enroll in a Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plan or a Medicare Part D stand-alone prescription drug plan.

Medicare Advantage plans, which are sold by private insurance companies contracted with Medicare, must provide at least the same amount of coverage as Original Medicare, but may provide other benefits as well, including prescription drug coverage.

If you enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan, you’ll get your Medicare Part A and Part B benefits through the Medicare Advantage plan and not through Original Medicare.

If you prefer to stay with Original Medicare, then you might want to get a stand-alone Medicare Part D prescription drug plan to cover your prescription medications. These plans are also sold through private insurance companies.

Each Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plan and Medicare Part D stand-alone prescription drug plan has a formulary, or a list of drugs covered by that plan. When shopping for either kind of plan, you’ll likely find it a good idea to explore all options available in your area to find coverage that works best for you.
