Over-the-counter (OTC) allowance Plus

Over-the-counter health purchases can really add up over time. That's why we include a monthly allowance on many of our plans so you can purchase thousands of health and wellness products to support your health.

If your plan is eligible, you’ll receive a Priority Health Medicare OTC card loaded with an allowance you can use on things like aspirin, cold medicine, compression socks and more.

  • Your OTC card will come in the mail and will be automatically reloaded.
  • There are several convenient ways to buy health items: shop in-store at Walmart, Kroger, CVS,  Walgreens, Rite-Aid, Dollar General or Family Dollar; order online at www.priorityhealth.com/OTC; or purchase by phone or mail order.
  • Your card will be re-loaded monthly with your allowance. Your balance will not roll over and funds expire at the end of each calendar month.

OTC Plus allowance

We know fresh and healthy food is important for a healthy you. That’s why members with certain chronic conditions will be able to spend their OTC allowance in-store on healthy food and produce at the same locations they can purchase their OTC items from. Eligibility is based on your chronic condition (such as if you have diabetes, cardiovascular disorders and more) and the level of your need (for example, if you’re at high risk of hospitalization and need intensive care coordination).

  • Your OTC Plus allowance will be reloaded monthly
  • You get to decide how this Plus allowance will best meet your needs. While this amount can be used on food purchases in-store only, it can also be used for standard OTC items purchased online or via phone or mail order.

Available on PriorityMedicare Vital, PriorityMedicare ONE, PriorityMedicare + Kroger and PriorityMedicare D-SNP + Kroger plans. To find out if you’re eligible to receive healthy food and produce, contact one of our Medicare experts at the number listed on our website.
