Change in coverage?

You will most likely experience no coverage changes for the medications you take when you join the HealthWATCH® drug plan. The majority of plan members, about 85%, are on Tier 1 medications and receive the higher coverage.

About 15% of people may notice a change in the amount that they pay and can receive more information about their coverage and options through our support line or through their pharmacy.

  • Options for plan members taking Tier 2 drugs:

    Ask your pharmacist to work with your doctor, if necessary, to switch to a more cost-effective drug option on Tier 1 to get the highest level of coverage.

    Continue to take the Tier 2 drug, if that is your choice, and receive lower coverage.

  • Options for plan members taking "not listed" drugs:

    Ask your pharmacist to work with your doctor, if necessary, to switch to a more cost-effective drug that could be on Tier 1 (higher coverage), Tier 2 (lower coverage) or even over-the-counter.

    Continue to take the drug that is not listed. The plan member will have to pay the full amount out of their own pocket.
