Most of our health plans include a comprehensive prescription drug benefit through Express Scripts. Selected health plans have pharmacy benefits integrated into the medical plan (see Integrated Prescription Benefits below).
Express Scripts Prescription Benefits
Express Scripts prescription benefits are available in both retail pharmacies and via home delivery for ongoing, refillable prescriptions. You can realize savings:
- By requesting generic drugs whenever possible. Your doctor can advise you whether a generic medication is appropriate.
- By using home delivery for prescriptions you need for 90 days or longer.
More than 67,000 participating retail pharmacies offer discounts with your Express Scripts ID card.
You can order up to 90 days of medication at one time, usually at a significant cost savings, through Express Scripts’ home delivery service. One of the benefits of home delivery is automatic refills and reminders when your prescription is expiring. Use of home delivery is required for maintenance medications after the third fill at a retail pharmacy.
Visit Express Scripts’ website to price a medication, download the formulary, or find a participating retail pharmacy. For more information:

If you have a Kaiser plan, Cigna Consumer-Directed Health Plan, or one of the Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Consumer-Directed Health Plans, your pharmacy benefits are integrated into your medical plan. For information about prescription drug benefits with these plans, visit the plan websites:
