First United American Life Insurance Company is a Medicare-approved Part D sponsor. Plan sponsors can choose not to renew their contract with CMS, and CMS may also refuse to renew the contract, thus resulting in a termination or nonrenewal. This may result in termination of the beneficiary's enrollment in the plan. In addition, the plan sponsor may reduce its service area and no longer offer services in the area where the beneficiary resides.
To be eligible for and to enroll in First United American Part D, you must be:
- • Eligible to receive Medicare benefits under Part A or enrolled in Part B.
- • A resident in the First United American Part D's service area (state of New York).
Medicare beneficiaries may enroll in First United American Part D through the CMS Medicare Online Enrollment Center located at http://www.medicare.gov.
- • You may only be enrolled in one Part D plan at a time.
- • If you are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage (MA) plan, you may not enroll in a First United American Part D Plan unless you are a member of a Private Fee-for-Service (PFFS) or a Medical Savings Account MA (MSA) plan.
First United American Prescription Drug Plans (PDP) have formed a network of pharmacies. You must use a network pharmacy to ensure you receive plan benefits. Our Part D Plans may not pay for your prescriptions if you use an out-of-network pharmacy, except in certain cases. The pharmacies in our network can change at any time. If you want a Pharmacy Directory, click here or call First UA Part D Customer Service to request the most current list Contact Us.
This plan has contracts with pharmacies that equal, or exceed, CMS requirements for pharmacy access in your area. In most cases, your prescriptions are covered under this plan only if they are filled at a retail network pharmacy or through our mail-order pharmacy. We will fill prescriptions at out-of-network pharmacies under certain circumstances. Quantity limitations and restrictions may apply.
Long-term care and home infusion pharmacies may service a broad area. Therefore, you may need to look outside your immediate area for these types of providers.

If you qualify for Extra Help for your Medicare prescription drug plan costs, the amount of your premium and cost at the pharmacy are less.

Medicare Supplement (Medigap) Policies with Part D
If you have a Medicare Supplement (Medigap) policy that includes prescription drug coverage, you must contact your Medigap provider to tell them you joined a Medicare prescription drug plan. If you keep your Medigap policy, your Medigap provider removes the prescription drug coverage portion of your policy and adjusts your premium. Under certain circumstances, you can buy a different Medigap policy without prescription drug coverage sold by your Medigap provider. Your Medigap provider cannot charge you more based on any past or present health conditions. Call your Medigap provider for details.
