Medicare Part D may no longer cover drugs for non-enroled prescribers

Medicare-Part-DPart D Prescriber Enrollment – Home

Any physician or other eligible professional who prescribes Part D drugs must either enroll in the Medicare program or opt out in order to prescribe drugs to their patients with Part D prescription drug benefit plans. Medicare Part D may no longer cover drugs that are prescribed by physicians or other eligible professionals who are neither validly enrolled, nor opted out of Medicare. The effective date for this requirement is June 1, 2016; however, all prescribers should enroll before January 1, 2016 to allow for the processing of applications and to ensure enrollees get their prescriptions.
