PRE_ICL_OONP_COPAY_1M

This variable identifies the beneficiary co-payment amount for a 1 month supply of the drugs on this tier, using an out-of-network pharmacy (OONP) during the pre-initial coverage limit (ICL) phase of the Part D benefit. 1 month supply.

Comments

Plans that use a coinsurance percentage rather than a co-payment amount will not have a value in this field; see instead the corresponding co-payment variable called (PRE_ICL_OONP_COINS_1M).

The CCW constructs the Plan Characteristics File from information submitted by 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.
