How to get no-cost medications

We help you get the medications you need. In fact, there are no copays for covered or approved drugs filled at an in-network pharmacy.


prescription iconWhen you need medicine, it will likely come from our Preferred Drug List (PDL) (PDF). This list includes prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs used for treatment. Most are covered without a referral or medical review.

provider phone iconOther drugs require prior authorization (PA) from your doctor. Your provider will fill out a PA request form (PDF) if you need one. Our clinical staff reviews the request and lets you know if we can approve it.

prescription bottle iconSometimes a drug on the PDL doesn’t work for you or makes you sick. Your provider can ask for a different drug via the PA request form (PDF). Once we approve the exception, you can get the prescription filled. Note: we cannot make any exceptions for drugs excluded by the State of Illinois.
