All GIC health plans provide benefits for prescription drugs using a three-tier copayment structure in which your copayments vary, depending on the drug dispensed. See the plans pages for copay details, and contact the plans you are considering with questions about your specific medications.
Tier 1: You pay the lowest copayment. This tier is primarily made up of generic drugs, although some brand name drugs may be included. Generic drugs have the same active ingredients in the same strength as their brand name counterparts. Brand name drugs are almost always significantly more expensive than generics.
Tier 2: You pay the mid-level copayment. This tier is primarily made up of brand name drugs, selected based on reviews of the relative safety, effectiveness and cost of the many brand name drugs on the market. Some generics may also be included.
Tier 3: You pay the highest copayment. This tier is primarily made up of brand name drugs not included in Tiers 1 or 2. Generic or brand name alternatives for Tier 3 drugs may be available in Tiers 1 or 2.
During Annual Enrollment, Compare and Contrast Prescription Drug Programs – Contact the plans you are considering to find out which tier the prescription drugs you and your family use most often are in. It may save you money to switch to a plan that places your prescription drugs in a more favorable tier.
Use Mail Order: Are you taking prescription drugs for a long-term condition, such as asthma, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol? Switch your prescription from a retail pharmacy to mail order. Some plans offer this benefit at select retail pharmacies. It can save you money – $5 -$30 for three months of medication, depending on the tier. See the plan pages for copay details. Once you begin mail order, you can conveniently order refills by phone or online. Contact your plan for details.
Some GIC plans have the following programs to encourage the use of safe, effective and less costly prescription drugs. Contact the plans you are considering to find out details about these programs and whether they apply to the drugs you are taking:
For most GIC Medicare enrollees, the drug coverage you will have through your GIC health plan is a better value than a basic Medicare Part D drug plan. Therefore, most individuals should not enroll in a non-GIC Medicare Part D drug plan. See the Medicare Part D page for additional details.
