Using the prescription drug plan this summer

As we head into summer, some of you will be heading out of town or even out of the country. Just remember to take care of your maintenance prescription needs before you pack your bags! For emergencies, always carry your Medco/Express Scripts prescription ID card.

For those traveling out of the country this summer, it is especially important to have your 90-day maintenance medications filled before you leave so you do not run short.

Here are a few steps you should take to ensure that you receive your medication in a timely manner:

First, check to make sure you have refills available on your prescriptions. (If there are no refills available, you will need your doctor to fax in a new prescription for each medication to the Medco/Express Scripts Mail pharmacy.)
