Compare prescription drug coverage
Your prescription drug coverage is included with your medical coverage. The amount you pay depends on the medical plan you choose, and using a network pharmacy will save you money. Make sure you know which pharmacies are in your plan’s network.
Each medical plan has its own prescription drug formulary (a list of medications, both generic and brand name, that offer the greatest overall value). The formulary determines which (and how) drugs will be covered, and how the brand-name drugs on the formulary are classified (preferred or non-preferred). Be sure to check your medications against your medical plan’s formulary, which may change.
