We offer our members a unique Patient Assistance Program (PAP). This program allows us to work with members to help find financial or pharmaceutical assistance with medications through the coverage gap, commonly known as the "donut hole." Most of the assistance received is in the form of medications that are free or of limited cost to the member. Members may contact us before or during the gap for a review of their medications to determine if there are any gap options. Usually, the assistance available is dependent on the number of people in the household and the total household monthly income.
Commonly referred to as the $4 Generic Drug Programs, they are intended to help customers save money on their generic prescription drugs and live better, healthier lives. Wal-mart, Sam''s Club, and Target pharmacies are providing these programs while agreeing to share your prescription drug profiles with your physician and health plan in order to keep track of any potential problems or interactions that may arise with your medication regimens. To find out if your prescription drugs are included on any of the $4 generics programs, you can visit each respective pharmacy website where a list of medication is provided or you may also call or visit those pharmacies for a copy of the list of medications included on the $4 generics program or for more information.
The pricing is as follows, you can expect to pay $4 for a 30 day-supply and $10 for a 90 day-supply (certain medications may be higher in price, that information will be indicated on the list of drugs in the program provided by each pharmacy). We are passing this important information along to you because we would like to see you get the medications you need, at prices you can afford and help you to stay out of the prescription drug coverage gap longer.
Some drug manufacturers offer assistance for people in the drug benefit gap. You may qualify for this assistance based on your income and assets. Patient assistance programs may be available for drugs you are taking. You will need to apply for assistance.
