Prescription Benefit

The Preferred Drug List (PDL)

Have your doctor prescribe preferred drugs on the 1199SEIU Preferred Drug List (PDL). Share this list with your doctor, and work together to find the best covered option for you. If your doctor prescribes a drug in a category covered by the Benefit Fund, but you don’t see it on the Preferred Drug List, just ask your doctor to prescribe any generic medication or a brand-name if there are no generics available.

The 90-Day Rx Solution

Fill long-term medications through The 90-Day Rx Solution, the Benefit Fund’s maintenance drug program. Ask your doctor to write your prescription for a three-month supply with three refills (a year’s supply in total), and fill it through Express Scripts by Mail, or order and pick up your prescription at any Rite Aid, Walgreens or Duane Reade pharmacies nationwide.

Participating Pharmacies

Fill short-term prescriptions at participating pharmacies.

Prior Authorization

Some medications and services require prior authorization. If your doctor thinks you need a medication that is not on the Preferred Drug List, call the Fund at (646) 473-9200.

Specialty, Step Therapy and Quantity Duration Drugs

In order to continue to safeguard your health while providing you access to the medications you need, Express Scripts has expanded some of our prescription programs, such as our specialty medications, step therapy drug list and drug quantity management drug list.
