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


This variable was only populated from 2006 - 2012. The CCW constructs the Plan Characteristics File from information submitted by Part D plan sponsors to CMS’sHealth 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.
