Part D prescriber enrollment requirement

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. This helps ensure that patients get their prescriptions without disruption.


We welcome pharmacies to the Aetna Medicare Part D pharmacy network. The network includes retail and non­retail pharmacies, both independent and chain.

Learn how to participate in our Part D network

You may have patients who take Part D drugs that are not on the plan’s formulary or have utilization management requirements. These members can get a transition supply of their medicine under certain circumstances. We can work with you to complete a successful transition and avoid disruption in treatment.
