Are there any restrictions on coverage?

Some Medicare plans have restrictions on coverage of tretinoin that may include:

Prior Authorization

Most Medicare plans will require you to obtain their authorization before they will provide coverage for this prescription. You’ll need to contact your plan and they may require you to have your doctor fill out paperwork indicating why you need this prescription. If you do not receive authorization or don’t want to go through this process, you may want to consider using a GoodRx discount instead of Medicare to find the best price for this prescription.

What drug tier is tretinoin typically on?

Tier 2

Medicare plans typically list tretinoin in Tier 2 of their formulary. Tier 2 means that this drug is a “non-preferred generic”. It will be expensive and there may be cheaper drugs that work in a similar fashion.
