Over-the-Counter (OTC) Benefit

iCare will deposit $40 a month into an account that is linked to a prepaid benefits card so you can purchase Medicare-approved OTC items like bandages, pain relievers, cold medicine, toothpaste, vitamins, and much more. Any unused balance will automatically expire at the end of the year or upon disenrollment from the plan.
You can buy approved OTC items through your OTC catalog. AND you can also buy OTC items at well-known retailers like Walgreens, Walmart, CVS and many more. Learn more about the new iCare Benefit Card for Family Care Partnership members.
