Does Medicare Cover Viagra?

Learn which Medicare Health Plan covers Viagra
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Viagra, a brand name drug to address erectile dysfunction, is an expensive drug that many Medicare-eligible men consider using. Does Medicare cover the cost of Viagra? The answer is somewhat complicated but we try to make sense of it below. You may also be wondering if Medicare covers Cialis.

Does Medicare Cover Viagra?

Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) does NOT cover prescription drugs, so it does not cover Viagra. Medicare Part B currently covers pumps for erectile dysfunction under Durable Medical Equipment. This would leave a 20% cost for you, unless you have a Medigap plan that covers Part B’s costs. But again, Part B does not cover Viagra.

Do Medicare Part D Drug Plans Cover Viagra?

Medicare Part D is additional coverage that you can purchase to pay for prescription drug coverage. Currently there is not a Medicare Part D plan that covers Viagra. Remember to check back during Medicare’s Annual Election Period (Oct 7-Dec 15), to see if any new Medicare drug plans will include Viagra on their formulary (list of covered drugs) next year.

Do Medicare Drug Plans Cover GENERIC Viagra?

Generic Viagra is called Sildenafil Citrate. Sildenafil Citrateis is covered by a few Medicare Part D providers. If you doctor prescribes you generic Viagra, give us a call and we can tell you which drug plans cover that (and all your other prescriptions).

Does Medigap Cover Viagra?

Medigap does not cover Viagra. While this supplemental insurance does cover a lot, it does not cover any prescription drug. It can cover all your out of pocket cost for the pump mentioned above.

Do Medicare Advantage Plans Cover Viagra?

Medicare Advantage (MA) plans can cover viagra. Don’t jump up and down just yet. Only a few plans cover name-brand Viagra. Here is the good news: We can help you find an MA plan that covers Generic Viagra at little or no cost

Learn More about Medicare Advantage Get a Medicare Advantage Quote

IMPORTANT TIP: When selecting a Medicare Part D plan, you want to consider all of your drugs (not just Viagra). We can run a free comparison of all you drugs to see which part D companies have the best plan for you. All you will need the name of all your drugs, the dosage and how often you take them. Give us a call at the number in the upper right hand corner of this page.

While brand-named Viagra is usually not covered, some Medicare Part D plans cover Cialis depending on the dose. .
Already have a part D plan but want to switch? You must change plans during the Annual Election Period of Oct. 15- Dec 7. Call one of our Senior65 licensed independent insurance agents at 800-930-7956 for help .

Thank you senior65! You were the first team that helped me find an Advantage plan that covers Viagra (or at least its generic equivalent). Its a great plan that addresses all my needs: Medical, Dental, Vision…. and the bedroom 🙂 All joking aside you guys saved me a lot of money.

I’m 66 years old with Medicare part A only. Im currently covered under my spouse’s
Insurance. Her plan has a 80/20 Rx plan as well. I was wondering if I should go to Medicare B and F. But I would also need part D for Rx coverage.
It seems to make sense to stay with my current wife’s policy.
Is there any reason that you know of where switching to Medicare part B and probably part D and F as well in my situation.
Thanks Steve

If your wife’s plan is considered “credible coverage” as defined by the CMS you can stay on it an avoid any fees or late penalties.

To see if it is a better choice than adding Medicare Part B and Medigap F and a drug plan, we would have to compare costs and understand more about what benefits your current plan offers. Give us a call and we would be glad to help you understands the cost of switching.

Since my Medicare Part D Plan doesn’t cover Cialis, why won’t they let me use the $200 manufacturer’s discount coupon? It specifically says that if you have Medicare, you are not eligible for the coupon. I even called to clarify to say yes, I have Medicare but I am not getting any reimbursement for this drug. They still said I will not qualify for the coupon. Is there a way around this? What if I went into a pharmacy and just wanted to pay cash and use the coupon, and not even present my Medicare Part D card, would that work? It seems so nonsensical to me since a large percentage of the men that this drug is created for are going to be over 65 but no Medicare reimbursement and no Lilly coupon eligibility. If you have any suggestions, please share. Thanks!

We totally understand your frustration with this situation! Believe us, we get calls all day long from men over 65 looking for drug coverage for Viagra and Cialis, and we are not able to help enroll them, in most areas. We agree this doesn’t seem fair, but according to Cialis they do not offer the $200 discount to people covered by government programs (ie. Medicaid, Medicare, VA). Our suggestion is to call Cialis directly to see if they can make an exception for you.

I have SilverScript for my Part D provider. They cover Sildenafil Citrate (20 mg), which is for ED, BUT THEY ONLY COVER IT for pulminary atrial hypertension, which it is also indicated for. I don’t even want my physician to “fib” about that one because I wouldn’t want PAH listed in my medical records. As a result I have been denied Sildenafil for my ED both on prior authorization as well as on appeal. This is insane! Truly a medical and psychological issue (regardless of what Marge says on 09/06/2016) and we have no recourse.

I am glad Medicare doesn’t cover Viarga or Cialis . Medicare doesn’t covered the necessary items of hearing aids, eyeglasses, or dental. So why should they cover something that is not that necessary to a fulling life. Women over a certain age do not need birth control pills useless there is a medical serious medical need. All those guy whiney about it need to fine something else to fill their time.

Since you’re already enrolled in a plan, you’ll want to check on other Part D plans closer to Medicare’s Annual Election period. At that time, you’ll be able to see if plans are newly offering coverage for Viagra or Cialis. In the meantime, you can contact the number on the back of your card to see if your current plan offers any coverage for either drug.

Woman can get birth control pill to women at any age if needed. Why isn’t Ed medical medication not allowed on Medicare. This is form of dicrimenation. It is cover on insurance for those until 65, this is also age discrimation as well. This also effects the mental health of both men and woman over 65. Maybe the new president can afford anything they need for wellness. Everyday people are being left without a real choice. Mrs Clinton simple things that should be included it Omama care are not included in any affordable Medicare formularies.

The GOVT…pays for contraceptive coverage and even forces
all insurance to cover it under ,,Obama care, but no forcing of

I hate my current plan, so I’m comparing Medicare Advantage Plans for 2016. So far, I’ve seen Viagra in several formularies, but it’s always Tier 4 or even Tier 5, which means you pay a percentage of the retail cost, which may be 40-50-60 %, depending on the plan.

However, you also need to consider your other prescription drugs to know the true cost of the plan. Please let us know if you need any help by calling 800-930-7956.

The GOVT…pays for contraceptive coverage and even forces
all insurance to cover it under ,,Obama care, but no forcing of
E.D. drugs coverage …..which is a true medical condition. Where as
contraceptive pills..is NOT…a medical condition.
I thought,,,,it is illegal to promote gender in equality and discrimination.

There might be a Medicare Advantage (MA) or Prescription Drug plan that covers Cialis, and there might be an MA plan that covers Viagra in your area of TN. Unfortunately, at this time we are not appointed in TN, and could not give you detailed information.

We’d be happy to locate a Medicare Advantage plan in your area that covers Viagra (if available), as of now, Part D plans are not covering Viagra. All we need is your zip code and county and we’d be good to go!

I hate my current plan, so I’m comparing Medicare Advantage Plans for 2016. So far, I’ve seen Viagra in several formularies, but it’s always Tier 4 or even Tier 5, which means you pay a percentage of the retail cost, which may be 40-50-60 %, depending on the plan.

Is there someone or an agency we can contact who we could encourage the change on ED medications? My previous insurance covered Viagra, Cialis, etc., but Medicare changed all of that. Thank you.

Good news! A few stand-alone Medicare prescription drug plans and Medicare Advantage plans w/ drug coverage are covering Cialis, and a few Medicare Advantage plans w/ drug coverage are covering Viagra for 2016. Unfortunately, as of now, we’re not seeing any stand-alone drug plans covering Viagra. Hope this helps!

As of now, Viagra is not showing up on the formularies. It was proposed, but not confirmed that some plans may start covering the enhancement drug as of 2016. We are keeping a watch on the drug plans and will update the article as new information becomes available.

If you would like to contact us at 800-930-7956, we’d be happy help you further.

As far as we know, Viagra is not covered at all by Part D, regardless of it’s medical purpose. Sorry we don’t have better news.

I know that there are no Part D plans that cover this right now, but do any give a discount on the drug? You know how vision plans can give a discount on LASIK..

We hear you! Unfortunately, there will not be a generic version of Viagra available in the states for awhile. Conflicting reports say 2017 and 2020.

At this point, we don’t know how many plans will cover Viagra. Once Open Enrollment rolls on by we’ll have a clearer picture on how the drug is covered by Medicare Advantage and Part D.
