We will notpay for your prescriptions if you use an out-of-networkpharmacy, except in certain cases.Navitus offers national in-network prescription coverage at over 64,000 pharmacies.

You will be responsible for the co-payments outlined in the co-payment table plus a penalty charge that includes the difference in the participating pharmacy network cost and the amount the pharmacy charged.
The COEHA Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan allows you to get your prescription(s) filled through:
1. Local Retail Pharmacy: The plan allows you to receive up to a 90-day supply of prescription medication at some localNavitusparticipating pharmacies. (Walmart, Kroger, Rite Aid, CVS and Target are a few of the chain retail pharmacies that will handle 90-day fills for mail-order copayments. There are also a few independent pharmacies that have agreed to do this.) Simply present your existing COEHA Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan ID card along with your prescription to a participating pharmacy. If you go to a participating pharmacy, you will pay only your co-payment amount.
