Medicare Coverage of Nonprescription (Over-the-Counter) Drugs
What It Is
Drugs that are purchased without a prescription from a doctor or other licensed medical provider, for the patient to use at home.
Medicare doesn't cover nonprescription (over-the-counter) drugs, except when provided to someone who's an inpatient in a hospital or skilled nursing or rehabilitation facility.
