The Value Choice Drug Plan
This plan gives your employees access to effective medications while maximizing benefit dollars. This value-added service offers “best value” drugs in a variety of common categories with no copayment for members.
Why does it matter?
Our Value Choice Drug plan addresses two of the biggest cost drivers related to prescription drugs: consumerism and adherence.
By offering the value drugs at no copayment, the plan encourages members to use an equally effective drug in place of a higher-cost alternative. The cholesterol medication Crestor as one example. Crestor costs about $6.40 a dose and has no generic equivalent. However, the generic drug simvastatin—one of our “value choices”—costs only 10 cents per dose and for most people is as effective at treating high cholesterol. This means that for each employee who switches from Crestor to simvastatin you’ll save $2,300 per year.
When your employees don’t follow the medication plan provided by their doctor, the cost of a resulting complication can far outweigh the cost of the medications. Our Value Choice Drug Plan’s “no copay” structure helps reduce the cost barrier that employees sometimes face when filling their prescriptions. This often leads to better treatment adherence, and in turn, better health outcomes for your employees.
