According to Medicare guidelines, a Medicare drug plan is required to offer standard prescription drug coverage and may offer additional coverage. A standard plan can't cover benzodiazepines, but a Medicare drug plan may cover benzodiazepines if it offers more than standard coverage. The premium for these plans usually is higher than for standard plans.
Enrolling in a supplemental drug plan that offers more than the standard coverage, such as Cigna Medicare Rx, Aetna Medicare, Humana or American Association of Retired People's plan, may help cover the cost of benzodiazepines.
Taking the time to research all the options available aids in selecting the right plan for your needs.
