Are there ways that I can save money on my medications?
There are several things you can do to make sure you’re getting the best value on your prescription drugs:
- Make it mail-order! Most members can get a 3-month supply of Tier 1 and Tier 2 drugs for $0 through Home Delivery from Express Scripts Pharmacy. That means bigger savings and fewer trips to the pharmacy.
- Use a SCAN Preferred pharmacy! These are pharmacies in the SCAN network that offer even lower copayments for many drugs. To find the pharmacies that offer preferred copayments, use our pharmacy search tool—and don’t forget to click the box that says “Show only Preferred pharmacies.”
- 3-Month Supply = Savings! Many SCAN plans offer discounts when you fill a 3-month of a prescription at a retail or mail-order pharmacy, instead of just a 1-month supply. Plus, picking up three months of medication at once is a lot more convenient.
- Ask your doctor if a lower-cost alternative will work for you. It may not have the same ingredients, but it can have the same effect.
