Beginning October 1, 2019, AmeriHealth will offer a $0 cost-sharing (i.e., no copayment or coinsurance) to certain AmeriHealth Pennsylvania members for many medications used to treat certain chronic conditions when filled at Walgreens or most in-network independent pharmacies through December 31, 2019.*
*Members in plans with a deductible applicable to the drug being dispensed are still responsible for meeting the deductible before receiving eligible medications at a $0 cost-share.
How the program works
AmeriHealth is continually trying to find new and innovative ways to help our members live healthier lives and get the most value from their health plan. We encourage our members to take preventive medications and manage their chronic conditions. This can help prevent complications or avoid costly trips to the emergency room or hospital. This $0 cost-share program is open to most large group (51+) commercial fully insured members with prescription benefits through AmeriHealth with the following stipulations:
- specific to many medications used to treat the following:
- high blood pressure
- high cholesterol
- mental health related
- pre-natal vitamins
- limited to 30-day fills of preferred brand and generic medications (no non-preferred or specialty drugs).
This month, AmeriHealth will contact members who have recently been dispensed an eligible medication to provide them with more details on the $0 cost-share program.
Providers and members can contact the Pharmacy Benefits phone number on the back of an AmeriHealth Pennsylvania member’s ID card to verify eligibility for the $0 cost-share.
