If you paid for a medication out-of-pocket prior to April 1, 2014 and needed to seek reimbursement through Express Scripts you must have done  this prior to July 1, 2014.  Any claims submitted to Express Scripts after July 1, 2014 will not be paid.

Our new mail order provider is Costco. This is not your local Costco store, it is a separate company.  They can be reached at 1-800-607-6861.  Please see attached flyer and enrollment form for additional information.

Our benefits are as follows:

  • Medication copays: Retail 30 day supply of a Generic medication $3, Brand medication $15.  Retail 90 day supply of a Generic medication $9, Brand medication $45.
  • Mail order 90 day supply of a Generic medication $9, Brand medication $35.

Effective January 1, 2013 you are eligible to receive vaccines through your local participating pharmacy with a $ZERO copay.  Please note if the pharmacy charges an administration fee this is 100% reimbursable through Navitus.

Effective October 1, 2016 you are able to pick up a 90 day supply of your medications at Costco pharmacy only.

Effective July 1, 2011, if you purchase a brand-name medication that has a generic equivalent, you will pay your $3 generic co-pay, plus the difference in the cost between the brand and generic medication price.  This additional cost will apply even if your doctor writes “DAW” (dispense as written) on the prescription.  If your doctor feels it is medically necessary for you to receive the brand name medication an authorization must be obtained by contacting Navitus.

Effective October 1, 2014, you may purchase a 90 day supply of most generic medications (excludes pain medications and cough syrup) for a $Zero copay at your local Costco and through Costco Mail Order!
