Plan participants enrolled in any LGHP health plan
have prescription drug benefits included in the coverage. All
prescription medications are compiled on a preferred drug list
("formulary list") maintained by each health plan's prescription benefit
manager (PBM). Formulary lists categorize drugs in four levels:
generic, preferred brand, nonpreferred brand and specialty. Each level
has a different copayment amount. Coverage
for specific drugs may vary depending upon the health plan. It is
important to note that formulary lists are subject to change any time
during the plan year. To compare formulary lists, cost-savings programs
and to obtain a list of pharmacies that participate in the various
health plan networks, plan participants should visit the website of each
health plan they are considering.
Plan participants who have additional prescription drug coverage,
including Medicare, should contact their plan’s PBM for coordination of
benefits (COB) information.
Plan participants enrolled in HealthLink OAP, Coventry Health Care OAP or the Local Care Health Plan (LCHP), have Express Scripts (formerly Medco) as their PBM and can find a listing of Express Scripts network pharmacies on the Express Scripts Prescription Benefit page.
