There is no out-of-pocket cost for your prescriptions when you follow the Benefit Fund’s prescription programs:
- Use preferred drugs on the Preferred Drug List (PDL)
- Use participating pharmacies for short-term medications
- Order maintenance medications using The 90-Day Rx Solution. Then fill it through Express Scripts by Mail, or order and pick up your prescription at any Rite Aid, Walgreens or Duane Reade pharmacies nationwide.
- Some medications 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
- Effective September 1, 2009: 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 prior authorization list, step therapy drug list and quantity duration drug classes.
Think Generics First!
Always ask your doctor to prescribe generic drugs from the Fund’s PDL where possible. The generic drugs listed on the Fund’s PDL have the same effectiveness as the name brands, but they cost much less. Remember, if your doctor prescribes a brand-name even though a generic is available, or a non-covered medication, you will have out-of-pocket costs.
For more information, call (646) 473-9200.
