Essential Plan and Benefit Communications
 
Pharmaceutical Drug Plan - Changes for 2016
2015 showed higher pharmaceutical drug costs among Tier 4 drugs We implemented cost saving measures for 2016, which should control these costs going forward. The cost saving measures are:
 
1. $500.00 deductible on Tier 4 drugs - Tier 4 drugs may cost more than others to treat the same condition, and can add significant costs to the Plan and drive higher rates. A deductible will help control these costs. 
 
2. Home Delivery Option - we encourage you to use home delivery, as it allows for greater control surrounding drug price fluctuations. Please note that Home Delivery is not mandatory.
