2025 Part D Changes

April 8, 2024

For the plan year 2025, CMS has announced some massive changes to the Part D program. These changes are in an effort to both streamline and simplify the Part D program for seniors.

Key Changes for 2025

Some of the key changes for 2025 for the part D program include:

  1. Removal of the Donut Hole (Gap Phase) and Initial Coverage Phase- These 2 are being merged together and will be now referred to as the “Standard Coverage Phase.” This condenses the Part D program from 4 phases to 3 (Deductible, Standard, Catastrophic).
  2. The Annual Out of Pocket (OOP) threshold is now $2,000 (changing from the current $8,000) TrOOP.
  3. The sunsetting of the Coverage Gap Discount Program (CGDP) and the establishment of the Manufacturer Discount Program. This will impact what drugs receive discounts, how they are counted towards the $2,000 OOP, and who is responsible for the cost beyond the set amount.
