What you need to know
With this plan, there is no deductible for prescription drugs. Cost sharing begins immediately and applies until you meet the separate prescription drug out-of-pocket limit for this plan.
Filling Your Prescriptions
You can get short-term prescriptions (30 days or less) at a network pharmacy; to get medications you take regularly, you must use Express Scripts Smart90 mail order, Walgreens retail pharmacies, or Kaiser mail order if you’re a Kaiser participant.
