Both active workers and retirees covered by the State Employee Health Benefit should watch their mailboxes this week for information on their prescription drug benefit. We’ll have more details next week, but for now we can tell you this:
For active employees, there are changes coming to the Express Scripts formulary. This is an annual procedure and won’t affect everyone.
For retirees, the state is rolling out a new retiree prescription drug plan. This change will be automatic for you, but it’s still important that you open, read and save any information you receive. The plan is a Medicare Part D plan, but there will still be no deductible, no donut hole and the out of pocket maximum will still be $500.
Again, we’ll have more information next week.
