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 www.express-scripts.com/ut 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 with coverage through active employment.
UT strongly urges you NOT to enroll in a private Medicare Part D program or a Medicare Advantage Plan with prescription drug coverage. 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 www.socialsecurity.gov.
