Prescription medications can be expensive, but adhering to your doctor’s treatment plan is important for good health. At SilverScript (PDP), we understand that many Medicare recipients are on a limited income and need to keep out-of-pocket medication costs as low as possible. The tips below will help you get the most value from your SilverScript prescription drug coverage to minimize the cost of your medications.
CVS Caremark Mail Service PharmacyTM is part of the preferred network, so you’ll enjoy the same low costs as you will at any other preferred pharmacy. In addition, all 90-day supplies of Tier 1 drugs filled by the mail order pharmacy have a $0 copay.3 (Members of SilverScript Plus plan also have a $0 copay for Tier 2 drugs.)4 Learn more about safe, convenient delivery of your medications by mail.
Preferred pharmacies agree to offer lower copays and coinsurance for SilverScript members. Not all pharmacies choose to participate. With more than 27,000 preferred network pharmacy locations nationwide, there’s likely to be one nearby.
Log in to your Caremark.com account, click on Plan & Benefits then select Prescription Savings Guide. Follow the easy instructions to find out if there are different drugs for your treatment that may cost you less. You will need to discuss trying a suggested drug with your doctor, as he/she will need to write a new prescription should they determine a less expensive drug is appropriate for your treatment.
No. Only you and your doctor can make decisions about your treatment. SilverScript and/or Caremark.com sometimes suggest different brand or generic drugs that may cost you less and still provide effective treatment for your condition. You may want to discuss these drugs with your doctor to see if a less expensive treatment may be an option for you.
