Reminder: Prescription benefits have changed for employees in Anthem plans

By Staff

Payroll & Benefit Services reminds employees enrolled in Anthem medical plans of changes made to their prescription benefits, and of the savings offered for having prescriptions filled at a University of Colorado Hospital (UCH) retail pharmacy or through the UCH mail order program.

For UA Net Plan members:

Copays at the UCH pharmacies are lower than copays for purchases at other retail pharmacies.

UCH pharmacies can dispense a 90-day supply at the retail counter for only two copays (90-day retail).

Mail order or 90-day retail is required for maintenance meds after three 30-day retail dispenses.

For all Anthem plan members (including UA Net, Lumenos, HMO Colorado and Medicare Primary):

UCH mail order service is the mail order provider for employees in all Anthem plans.

For a list of medications excluded from the mail order or 90-day retail requirement, go, under pharmacy questions and answers for employees – Are there exceptions to the mail order program?

Your doctor can fax or phone in your prescription to one of the UCH pharmacies listed below.
