National News – CHI Medical Plan Participants Notice

Continue to Use Third-Party Copay and Coupon Cards for Prescription Payment

Please disregard any notice you received indicating that, beginning July 1, third-party “manufacturer” copay and coupon cards would no longer be accepted as payment for prescriptions. After further consideration, employees who use CHI’s prescription benefit plans can continue to use these cards.

Here’s what you need to know
You can continue to use third-party “manufacturer” copay cards and coupon cards when filling your prescriptions. Your doctor may be able to offer other cost-saving alternatives: we encourage you to ask. Remember, you can use your Health Savings Account (HSA) and Flexible Spending Account (FSA) cards to pay for prescriptions, too.

During our annual benefits program review, we may look again at the use of third-party copay and coupon cards and will let you know about any planned changes. If you have any questions about your prescription drug benefits, please contact CVS Caremark, 1-877-232-7925.
