Generic vs Brand Name Drugs

If your company has chosen a prescription drug card health option, you must present your card at the pharmacy at the time of purchase and pay your portion of the expense. 

To ensure that your prescription is covered up to the full cost of a brand name drug, your physician must indicate no substitution on your prescription. Otherwise, if you are buying a brand name drug, you may only be paid up to the cost of its generic equivalent. 

If you do not present your Drug Card at the time of purchase, the pharmacy will not be able to tell you how much of your prescription will be covered by your insurance. 

It is imperative that you present your drug card at the time of purchase.
