Mandatory Generics

Some GIC Plans have programs to encourage the use of safe, effective and less costly prescription drugs. One of these programs is mandatory generics, which has been implemented in the UniCare State Indemnity Plans' prescription drug program managed by CVS Caremark and Tufts Health Plan.

If you are a member of a plan that mandates generics, and you fill a prescription for a brand-name drug for which there is a generic equivalent, you will be responsible for the cost difference between the brand-name drug and the generic, plus the generic co-pay. Contact your Plan for additional details.
