What does my TeamCare Prescription Benefit cover?

The TeamCare Prescription Drug Benefit covers charges for eligible drugs prescribed by a physician or dentist dispensed by a pharmacist and not available over the counter without a prescription. 

How much does TeamCare pay under my TeamCare Prescription Benefit?

Retail Pharmacy Store: Under the Retail Pharmacy program, you pay a coinsurance per fill.

Maintenance Choice/Mail Order Pharmacy: Under the Caremark Mail Service Pharmacy or Maintenance Choice, you pay a co-insurance per fill. Under Maintenance Choice, the patient can receive a 90-day supply of medication at a local CVS pharmacy store.

Do I have to use mail order?

If by the third fill, long-term maintenance medications are not filled through the CVS/caremark Mail Service Pharmacy or Maintenance Choice, they are subject to a 50% co-insurance if filled through the Retail Card Program.

Do I have to use generic medications?

If you purchase a brand-name drug when a generic equivalent is available, you will pay your generic co-insurance plus the difference in cost between the brand-name and the generic drug. The maximum co-payment per prescription does not apply for brand-name drugs when a generic equivalent is available. Please refer to your Plan Benefit Profile for specific coverage (Forms and Documents or your Participant Dashboard).

What is not covered under my TeamCare Prescription Benefit?

TeamCare does not cover medication or supplies ordered from outside the United States, over the counter medications, vitamins or dietary supplements. For a complete listing of non-covered items under your Prescription Plan, please refer to your Summary Plan Description (Forms and Documents or your Participant Dashboard).
