Prescription drug changes


Updated cost-sharing for prescription drugs

  • CDHP + HSA plans: For brand-name preventive drugs, you don’t have to meet your deductible, but will need to pay 20% coinsurance.
  • Core PPO plan: Specialty drugs will be subject to higher minimum and maximum costs:
    • Preferred brand: $75 minimum/$150 maximum per fill
    • Brand: $150 minimum/$300 maximum per fill

Weight-loss drugs now covered

With prior authorization, all medical plan options will cover weight-loss drugs. Your doctor should get approval from Express Scripts before you get a prescription for weight-loss drugs. Your drug costs will be determined by the medical plan option you are enrolled in.
