Effective 1/1/2017, prescription plan will be administered by Express Scripts. More information to come.

Employees pay 40% of the retail cost for a 30-day supply for prescriptions purchased at participating pharmacies. This is called coinsurance. The minimum coinsurance is $20 and the maximum is $100 for a 30-day supply.

Managing Prescriptions Online
Log on to www.scriptcare.com , click on Activate Your Account.
When creating a user account to manage your prescriptions on-line, enter the Member ID# that's on your PCHP card.
You can save on some medications by using programs offered by retailers such as Walmart's $4 Prescription Program - most pharmacies have a similar program. If your prescription is covered under this type of program, do not show your prescription ID card.
For example: Walmart's $4 program cost is less than the City's $20 co-pay.
Mandatory Mail Order
Employees can get a prescription filled 3 times at a retail pharmacy before they must use Mail Order. Mail Order is required for prescriptions that are taken on a long-term or on-going basis. To begin ordering your prescriptions through mail order, contact Drug Source. Drug Source fills the mail-order prescriptions for Script Care and their number is 1-800-854-8764. Their hours are 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. central time. If you need a mail-order Rx, complete the Patient Rx Profile form. You can also call Drug Source directly at the preceding number, or call Script Care, who in turn will transfer you to Drug Source.
Mail Order Tips
• Don't wait until you run out of medication to place your mail order.
• If you are mailing in a prescription for a newly prescribed medication, ask your physician
to write two prescriptions: one for a 30-day supply to get you started (to be filled at
your local pharmacy), and one for a 90-day supply plus additional refills to be submitted
for mail order.
• Ask for a generic - Employees choosing a brand name when a generic is available
must pay the difference in the cost.
