After you reach $4,430 in drug costs

Once you and Priority Health combined spend $4,430 for your drugs during the year, then you enter what's called a "coverage gap." During this gap, you'll pay:

  • 25% of the cost of your generic drugs
  • 25% of the cost of your brand drugs, plus dispensing fee

Then, once your out-of-pocket Part D drug costs reach $7,050, for the rest of the year you pay the greater of:

  • 5% of the cost OR
  • $3.95 for generic drugs
  • $9.85 for all other drugs
