Please be assured that there is no additional cost to you the employee or the City. This is strictly an additional benefit to you and savings. This is a voluntary program and not replacing your current prescription benefit plan. So once again, if your medication is a brand name and is on the list, there is 0 copays. Remember medications must be tried for 30 days before ordering through MethuenMeds.
So what do I have to do:
" Check to see if your medication is on the list
" Ask your doctor for a prescription for a 3 month supply with 3 refills.
" Fill out the enrollment form and include a prescription for each medication
" Any questions call 1-866-893-6337
