The drug I take is new. Why doesn't it appear on the Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Finder?

The drug I take is new, either a new brand or new generic. My pharmacy has it in stock. Why doesn't this drug appear on the Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Finder?

Formulary information for new drugs should be obtained by contacting the Part D plan directly. Because of the timeframes needed for Plans and CMS to exchange this data, it is possible a Plan may make a new drug available at the pharmacy before the drug appears on the Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Finder. A plan may make a positive formulary change, such as adding an eligible Part D drug to their formulary, at any time during the plan year.
