This variable identifies the beneficiary copay amount for a 3 month supply of the drugs on this tier, using an in-network non-preferred pharmacy (INNPP) during the pre-initial coverage limit (ICL) phase of the Part D benefit.


Plans that use a coinsurance percentage amount rather than a co-payment amount will not have a value in this field; see instead the corresponding coinsurance variable called (PRE_ICL_INNPP_COINS_3M). 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.
