Prescription drug savings

Find ways to save on your prescriptions

Generic drugs

  • Generic drugs usually cost less than brand-name drugs. They're rated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be as safe and effective as brand-name drugs.

Fill prescriptions for 100 days instead of 90 days

  • Save one extra fill a year by requesting your doctor write a 100-day supply for all the maintenance medications you take.
  • Pay $0 for a 100-day fill at a mail-order pharmacy for Tier 1 and Tier 2 drugs at Costco retail and mail order pharmacies. No Costco membership is needed.

Use our preferred retail pharmacy network or mail order pharmacy 

  • You can save money by filling prescriptions in our preferred retail pharmacy network and through our mail order pharmacy.
  • Preferred pharmacies include all SSM pharmacies, Walgreens, Walmart, Costco, and Forward Pharmacy.

Vaccine savings

  • Pay $0 for vaccines at the doctor's office or the pharmacy. Vaccines typically given at your pharmacy can now be offered when you see your doctor.

Insulin savings

  • You'll pay a $30 copay per prescription at a preferred pharmacy or a $35 copay at a standard pharmacy. These savings apply through the deductible and copay stages and the donut hole.
