Rx Preventive Services

In addition to a healthy lifestyle, preventive medications can help people avoid many illnesses and conditions. Preventive medications are defined as those prescribed to prevent the occurrence of a chronic disease or condition for those individuals with risk factors, or to prevent the recurrence of a disease or condition. Some examples of the medications listed are for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, asthma, osteoporosis, and heart disease. This list provides examples of your preventive medications by drug category/therapeutic classification. Medications may be added to or removed from the list, depending on different factors, including the intended purpose of the medication and new medications.

Health Care Reform Preventive Care

Under the health reform law (Affordable Care Act), benefit plans must cover certain Preventive Care Medications at 100% - without charging a copay, coinsurance or deductible. This is a list of prescription and OTC drugs with a valid prescription that is required to be covered by ACA regulations at $0 copay at any network pharmacy.

Transition Program

If you experience a disruption to one of your current medications during the first 60 days of enrollment, we can provide a temporary one month supply while you consult with your physician. If it is decided that a formulary alternative is not best for your situation and should remain on the drug, you can then ask the plan for a formulary exception.
