This variable identifies the beneficiary co-insurance percentage for a days supply of the drugs (other than 1 or 3 months) on this tier, using an in-network non-preferred preferred pharmacy (INNPP) during the pre-initial coverage limit (ICL) phase of the Part D benefit.


This variable was only populated from 2007-2012. Plans that use a co-payment amount rather than a coinsurance percentage will not have a value in this field; see instead thecorresponding co-payment variable called (PRE_ICL_INNPP_COPAY_OS). The CCW constructs the Plan Characteristics File from information submitted by Part D plan sponsors to CMS’s Health Plan Management System (HPMS). Employer and National Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) plans are waived from reporting Plan Benefit Package information. For those plans that did not report, the value of this variable will be blank.
