For covered prescription drugs, you pay a single copayment (or coinsurance percentage) for up to a 30-day supply. Coverage for various types of drugs is shown in your Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC). Log in to MaddyPortal.com to view your SBC.
Discuss options with your doctor and save money
Generic drugs generally cost less, so ask your doctor if there is a generic alternative. If you choose a brand-name drug when a generic equivalent is available, you would pay the generic copayment plus the difference in price between the brand name and the generic drug.
Prices can vary widely from one pharmacy to another. It pays to shop, especially if you are on a maintenance (long term) medication. Mail order is often a good option.
Coordination of benefits
For members who have dual (two or more) insurance policies, Health Tradition does offer coordination of benefits for prescriptions.
