Medical and prescription drug changes

The IRS minimum allowed deductible amounts are increasing for 2023. As a result, the medical plan deductibles will increase as shown in the chart below.

If you enroll in a CDHP medical option and take advantage of virtual office visits, you will see a slight increase in your MDLIVE copays to $48 (up from $44), subject to coinsurance and deductible.

You will now pay a copay for generic preventive* drugs in the CDHP + HSA options:

  • A $10 copay for up to a 30-supply at a retail store
  • A $25 copay for a 90-day supply through mail order or at a CVS or Walgreens pharmacy

You still do not have to meet your deductible for preventive medications under the CDHP + HSA options.

* If a drug is considered “preventive care” for Affordable Care Act purposes, no copay will apply.
