Is Levitra covered by insurance?
The answer to this question varies from one health insurer to another. Under some health plans, Levitra and the other PDE5 inhibitors are not covered at all, while other plans may cover the drugs but restrict the number of pills they will pay for during a given period. To quickly determine if your health insurance plan covers Levitra, you should talk to a representative of your insurer.
If you have prescription drug coverage, ask your insurer for a copy of its formulary, the list of drugs it covers and the copays for each. This is one way to find out what drugs are covered and how much of a copay you’ll need to buy each of them.
Medicare’s Part D prescription plan does not cover Levitra or any other impotence medication, which is particularly troubling because men over 65 are among the most likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction.
