How can I save money on my prescriptions?
- If your health plan has a $2 or less co-payment, your co-payment through Medco By Mail is zero.
- If your plan has a $5 generic/$10 brand name co-payment, your Medco By Mail co-payment is reduced to $2.
- If you have the new $10 generic/$20 brand name co-payment, your Medco By Mail co-payment will be $20 generic and $40 brand name (or two co-payments for a 3-month supply). In addition to your co-payment, if you choose the brand name and there is a generic available, you may be charged an ingredient cost difference.
You can save additional dollars because Medco By Mail can fill up to a 90-day supply. Once you are enrolled in the home delivery service, getting refills and renewals is a snap. You can order refills by phone at 800.473.3455 or using an online form.
