Prescription Drug Reimbursement Form

If you purchase a preferred or non-preferred drug when a less expensive generic alternative drug is available, you must pay the difference between the cost of the brand name drug and the generic drug  plus the applicable generic copayment . This difference does NOT count toward your annual deductible. Sometimes the cost difference is quite large. 

The generic, preferred, or non-preferred list of covered drugs is reviewed periodically resulting in changes to the prescription drug list throughout the year. If you are taking a medication that is affected by one of these changes, Express Scripts will mail a letter to your address on file to alert you of the change in benefits. Please refer to the Express Scripts website at or call Express Scripts Customer Service ( 1- 800-818-0155 ) for current information on specific medications.

Your Prescription Drug Plan and Medicare Part D

The Federal Medicare program provides a Medicare-approved prescription drug benefit – Medicare Part D. The University of Texas System continues to offer your current UT SELECT prescription drug benefit, and enrollment in Medicare Part D will have a negative financial impact for most UT participants.

UT strongly urges you NOT to enroll in the Medicare Part D program. UT is committed to providing your prescription drug coverage now and in the future and to helping you make informed choices about your prescription drug benefit. For a relatively small number of very low-income UT retirees, enrolling in Medicare Part D may save money if the retiree also qualifies for a “low income subsidy” provided as part of the Medicaid Part D Program. Please see the Medicare Part D Notice of Creditable Coverage . For more information about the low income subsidy, call 1-800-772-1213 or visit . © 2016 The University of Texas System.
