2017 Blue MedicareRx℠ (PDP)

Rhode Island residents are eligible for Medicare prescription drug coverage and Blue MedicareRx membership if:

  • You are entitled to Medicare Part A and/or enrolled in Part B.
  • You are not enrolled, or do not plan to stay enrolled, in another Medicare Prescription Drug Plan or Medicare Advantage plan with Part D prescription coverage.

Blue MedicareRx is also offered in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Vermont.

Eligible individuals may only enroll in one Medicare Prescription Drug plan at a time. If you already have a Medicare Advantage plan or other insurance that includes Part D coverage, you will be automatically disenrolled from your current Medicare Advantage or Part D plan.

Note that there are special times when you can enroll in Blue MedicareRx, as with any Part D product. You may enroll when you become initially eligible for Medicare Parts A and B (during your Medicare Initial Enrollment Period). Other times you can enroll in Blue MedicareRx include the Annual Election Period (October 15 through December 7) and the Medicare Advantage Disenrollment Period (January 1 through February 15).

Complete details on this plan are available at the Blue MedicareRx website.
