Are prescriptions covered under all private health plans?

A Answers (1)

  • No, prescriptions are not covered under all private health plans, especially managed care plans. Managed care plans offer a formulary or a list of the drugs they cover.  Your copay depends on whether you get a generic drug or brand name drug and whether it’s listed on the formulary. Check the plan before buying to see the extent of drug coverage and make sure it covers the prescriptions you currently take.
