Medical benefit means that both the drug and procedure are covered under the same benefit.

Pharmacy benefit means that the drug is covered separately from the procedure.

Out-of-pocket costs are all the costs for medical care you have to pay yourself because they are not paid for by your insurance. These costs may be reduced by supplemental insurance or manufacturer co-pay assistance programs.
