Make the most of your health plan benefits

The following tips can help you save when you receive care:

Tip 1: Use your preventive care benefits; certain services are covered in full.
Your plan covers certain preventive services in full when received from an in-network provider. 

Tip 2: Choose in-network providers and participating pharmacies.
Refer to the online provider directory to locate in-network providers and participating pharmacies.

Tip 3: Choose generic medications, use a mail-order pharmacy and have certain medications prior authorized.
Purchase up to a 90-day supply of maintenance drugs using a participating mail-order or preferred retail pharmacy. Not all prescriptions are considered maintenance medications, including compounded drugs, drugs from specialty pharmacies and oncology drugs.

Tip 4: Know what services need to be authorized before you receive care.
