I am a major fan of very, very careful formatting of complex queries. If you break down the WHERE clause into widely separated parts you'll see that the two date-related clauses are not compared to anything. You've performed a DateAdd and now need to compare them to something. See "need comparison" comments below.
Where 
 
dateadd(mm,-3,cast(cast(month(getdate()) as varchar)
+'/01/'
+cast(year(getdate()) as varchar) as datetime))  --<< Need comparison
 
  and 
 
cast(cast(month(getdate()) as varchar)
+'/01/'
+cast(year(getdate()) as varchar) as datetime)  --<< Need comparison
 
  and drugidentifier.Identifier in ('57844071319')
  and claim.IsRelevant = 1 
  and (
    PrimaryPlan.PlanName not like 'medco%' 
and PrimaryPlan.PlanName not like 'optima%' 
and PrimaryPlan.PlanName not like 'PCS%' 
and PrimaryPlan.PlanName not like 'tricare%'
and PrimaryPlan.PlanName not like 'Wellcare%'
)

You'll have to introduce a comparison along the lines of:

   where SomeDate between ( your calc #1 ) and ( your calc #2 )

You are constructing two dates but not comparing them to anything. That is the source of the error.

I don't have your database schema handy, so here's a working example that uses the Northwind sample database. I edited one of the Orders records to use a date of 3/1/2009 so it would show up in the results.
select * from orders 
where 
  OrderDate between 
 
dateadd(mm,-3,cast(cast(month(getdate()) as varchar)
+'/01/'
+cast(year(getdate()) as varchar) as datetime))  
 
  and 
 
cast(cast(month(getdate()) as varchar)
+'/01/'
+cast(year(getdate()) as varchar) as datetime)
