Wyre, here’s the summary of benefits for the United Retiree Advantage plan. I’ve already signed up for it.

I took advantage of the option to have someone call me. I asked this question and was told that yes there would be an uncharge of IRMAA if you are subject to it. Right now we are not but I do foresee that happening in a year once RMDs happen.

So all of this is giving me pause ... I signed up for Aetna MA but have found now that they do not cover the hypothyroid drug I have taken for years. I'm not thrilled with the idea of paying for it out of pocket, especially if I'm going to have to pay an upcharge via IRMMA.

I may need to switch back to my old plan (APWU/Cigna) and Medicare Part B.

So I've now made about 6 phone calls including being transferred between different parties and no one at Aetna seems to be able to tell me about coverage for the drugs I take. Anyone have any suggestions to find definitive answers? I found that even though my drugs are not on my existing plan's formulary (even for this year) they have been covered so I'm not sure what to think. But again, at this point, I'm figuring it's probably safer to stay with the plan I know, especially since I sometimes travel out of the country for several months at a time and would not want my coverage to be limited to only significant emergencies.

Here is the 2022 drug list. Perhaps your Rx is included there.

And BTW, the plan covers both emergencies and urgent care overseas. Only routine care is excluded.
