Part D prescriber enrollment requirement

Any health care professional who prescribes drugs to patients with Part D plans must now enroll in the Medicare program or opt out. If you do not enroll or opt out, Medicare Part D may no longer cover these drugs as of February 1, 2017. Please try to enroll or opt out by November 1, 2016. This will allow time for application processing and ensure that patients get their prescriptions without disruption.
