KelseyCare Advantage offers additional gap coverage for Tier 1 and Tier 2 drugs and Select Insulins. Not everyone will enter the coverage gap. Under this plan, you may pay even less for the brand and generic drugs on the formulary. Your cost varies by tier. You will need to use your formulary to locate your drug’s tier. See the chart that follows to find out how much it will cost you.
