More Options Available for Filling Your 90-day Maintenance Medications  

Starting September 1, 2019, as part of your UT SELECT and UT CONNECT prescription benefit (non-Medicare plan), you have access to a more convenient and money saving feature for your maintenance medications (those drugs you take regularly for ongoing conditions). Through your plan, you could pay less when you fill a 90-day supply of your maintenance medications at a participating pharmacy (Express Scripts home delivery, Walgreens, and the University of Texas pharmacies) than you would pay for three 30-day supplies at a non-preferred retail pharmacy. 

There are Two Ways to Save on Your Maintenance Prescriptions

  1. For savings and convenience, take advantage of home delivery from the Express Scripts Pharmacy. Get 90-day supplies of your medications delivered direct to you, safely and securely, with free standard shipping. 

    Log in at or call the number listed on the back of your member ID card to learn how to get started with home delivery. Express Scripts can contact your doctor to have a new 90-day prescription sent right to you.
  2. Or, you can fill your maintenance prescriptions at a nearby Walgreens or UT pharmacy. The pharmacist will contact your doctor to get a new 90-day prescription or will transfer your current 90-day prescriptions.

Your copayment for your 90-day supply will be the same whether you fill your prescriptions through Express Scripts home delivery or at a participating Walgreens or UT pharmacy.

If you have questions about the new benefit or want assistance to help you get started on filling your maintenance medication 90 days at a time, call Express Scripts at (800) 818-0155 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

Unique & Complex Conditions Require Specialized Pharmacy Needs 

For UT SELECT and UT CONNECT participants managing a complex health condition, effective September 1, 2019, the specialty-trained pharmacists from Accredo (an Express Scripts Pharmacy) and University of Texas specialty medication pharmacies will be your exclusive providers to guide you on your healthcare journey.

The exclusive arrangement through Accredo and UT specialty pharmacies means you will pay less when you purchase your specialty prescriptions. Effective September 1, 2019, if you use a pharmacy other than Accredo or the UT specialty pharmacies, you’ll be subject to the entire cost of the prescription. By filling specialty prescriptions through Accredo and UT specialty pharmacies, you willpay only your plan’s deductible and copayment and receive a variety of specialty pharmacy services.

What is a specialty medication?

A specialty medication is used to treat chronic, complex conditions like multiple sclerosis, hepatitis C and cancer. Specialty medications can include oral solids, or can be injected, infused or inhaled and may require special handling.

For assistance obtaining your specialty medication through Accredo or help locating a UT specialty pharmacy, call Express Scripts at (800) 818- 0155. Your Express Scripts Customer Service Representative will be glad to answer any question and help you find the best options to filling your specialty medication prescription.
