OTC Benefits

Some Nascentia Health Plans offer over-the-counter (OTC) benefits. If you are a member eligible for this benefit, you can use your Nascentia Health Plus OTC Network Card to buy over-the-counter medicines and health-related items.

If you have any questions, please call member services at 1.888.477.HOME (TTY711).  For OTC card services, including checking your balance and finding an accepting retailer call 1.888.682.2400.

Nascentia Health Plus Medicare Advantage plans offer the OTC benefit as a supplemental benefit for health-related items and medications that are: available without a prescription, and are not covered by Medicare Part A, B or D. OTC and items that are eligible to be included in a Part C supplemental benefit must meet our criteria for qualification as a supplemental benefit.

This benefit includes health-related OTC items such as adhesive or elastic bandages, and OTC drugs such as antihistamines and analgesics, that meet the criteria as eligible supplemental benefits as per Medicare guidance mandates. Medical supplies associated with the administration of insulin, (e.g., alcohol wipes and syringes) are not eligible to be covered as a supplemental benefit. OTC items may only be purchased for the enrollee. Purchases for anyone else are not allowed.
