    • Tier 1 includes many generic prescriptions for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, depression and diabetes.
    • Tier 2 includes all other generic prescriptions . Generic prescriptions are required by the FDA to contain the same active ingredients as their brand-name counterparts.
    • Tier 3 includes preferred brand name prescriptions .
    • Tier 4 includes non-preferred brand name prescriptions .
  • If you purchase a brand name prescription when there is a generic equivalent available, you will pay the brand copay plus the difference in cost between the brand name and the generic. Exceptions are available if the brand name medication is authorized as medically necessary by Elixir.
  • Up to a 90-day supply available at retail or through mail order.
  • Maintenance medication refills are required to be dispensed in a 90-day supply by a pharmacy in the Rx90 network (Elixir Pharmacy, Rite Aid, Walgreens or Costco retail pharmacy). If you are currently taking a maintenance medication, you will need to have your prescription transferred to an Rx90 network pharmacy. For a list of maintenance medications, please visit www.ElixirSolutions.com.
  • Specialty medications must be filled by Elixir Specialty Pharmacy, with the exception of limited distribution prescriptions . For questions or to learn more, please visit www.ElixirSolutions.com or call 877.437.9012.
  • Certain specialty medications are subject to a variable copayment. Elixir Specialty Pharmacy representatives will help you enroll in prescription manufacturer assistance to reduce your out-of-pocket costs below the standard copayment tiers described above. If you are ineligible for the prescription manufacturer assistance program, the standard copayment tiers apply.

Over-the-Counter Options

Save time and money by
utilizing a mail order
service for maintenance
medications. A 90 or 100-
day supply of your
medication will be shipped
to you, instead of a typical
30-day supply from a
walk-in pharmacy

Some pharmacies, such
as those at warehouse
clubs or discount stores,
may offer less expensive
prescriptions than
others. Call ahead to
determine which
pharmacy provides the
most competitive price.

For common ailments,
over-the-counter prescriptions
may provide a less
expensive alternative
that serves the same
purpose as prescription
