Your out-of-pocket costs are lower. When you choose a provider in Category 3 ($$$), you may be billed for any balance over the allowed amount.

You are entitled to case management services even if you cannot actively participate in the assessment phase (the time when we compile all the information necessary to get started on your case).

You have the right to give input into your case management plan. We ll keep you informed of your options as we work together to make decisions regarding your care. We must honor your life and advance-care directives as applicable. We ll tell you our criteria for deciding when to close a case. We ll notify you when we change or close your case, and tell you exactly why. If these rights don t make sense or you don t know what they mean, then your case manager will provide further education to help you understand them.

Try a generic first! Switch to a generic version of the brand-name medication you are taking. Just ask your pharmacist to fill your prescription with the generic rather than the brand-name. or 2. Get prior authorization for that brand-name medication. The brand-name medication might be denied if it hasn t been approved ahead of time. Ask your doctor or pharmacist to send a prior authorization request with your medical or medication history before your next refill. Your pharmacist may fax your prescription profile to 1 (888) or call 1 (800) Filing claims and getting reimbursed The pharmacist will file your claim for you, and we ll pay the pharmacy directly, so you won t have to worry about paperwork or getting reimbursed.
