A Summary of Your Prescription Drug Benefits

  • The State's prescription drug plans require a co-pay or co-insurance. How much you pay depends on how the prescription is filled.
  • You'll pay the lowest amount for a generic (Tier One) drug. A generic medicine is FDA approved and equal to the brand name product in safety, effectiveness, quality and performance.
  • You'll pay a higher amount for a preferred brand (Tier Two) drug. Preferred brands are included on the drug list.
  • You'll pay the highest amount for a non-preferred brand (Tier Three) drug. These belong to the most expensive group of drugs. These drugs are not included on the drug list.
