Stay Healthy. Save Money.
To fight the rapidly rising costs of prescription drugs, the Trust’s therapeutically based prescription plan includes a “Tier 0”. For the highly cost-effective medications under Tier 0, you pay nothing when using a Sound Health & Wellness Trust Custom Network Pharmacy (PDF).
Tier 0 drugs are medications that have been proven to be safe and effective for many people, and can provide similar benefits to other more expensive brand and generic drugs at a substantially lower price.
Prescriptions Under Tier 0 Include*:
- Cholesterol lowering medications (Simvastatin)
- Proton pump inhibitors (Omeprazole)
- Non-sedating antihistamines (generic Claritin, Loratadine and Loratadine D)
*With physician prescription
What You Can Do:
- Talk to your doctor about appropriate medication choices for your condition.
- If your physician believes that you are one of the majority of patients appropriately treated with one of the $0 co-payment drugs listed above, ask him or her for a written prescription, even if the medication is over-the-counter.
- Pick up your prescription at one of the Sound Health & Wellness Trust’s Custom Network Pharmacies (PDF)— at no cost to you!
