This is the net amount that the Part D plan paid for a PDE that was covered by the Medicare Part D benefit.
This field is populated when the Drug Coverage Code (DRUG_CVRG_STUS_CD) equals “C”.
This field excludes supplemental drugs, supplemental cost-sharing, over-the-counter drugs, and any non-Part D drugs that are funded by Part C rebates. Finally, this field does not include any amounts paid by the Part D low-income subsidy.
This variable comes directly from the original PDE.
