PRESCRIPTION COVERAGE 2021

 

Note from President Marcely:

I have recently received complaints about our prescription coverage. It seems that ProAct AND OptumRx suddenly are no longer covering certain meds that they have covered in the past. Instead they are recommending other meds in their place. I've contacted City Hall and rec'd the following from Donna Miller

 

"Unfortunately, the American Medical Association annually sends out to the prescription companies any Medication changes for the year. We never know which medications will be on the list. Based on this list approved by Medicare certain medication once on this list are no longer covered by the insurance. If this pertains to anyone they then have to contact their Doctor to have them send in a appeal to Proact [or Optum] stating “WHY” the member MUST stay on that particular med as oppose to the substitution. Once they’ve done this the medication will be covered."

 

The twist is, the new meds should at least be tried before filing an appeal. It is important that the doctor's office explains that the new meds are not as effective as the old ones. ProAct and/or Optum process all orders regardless if you use mail order or in-person prescriptions.

 

If you need clarification contact Donna Miller at 315-448-8445 or Dmiller@syrgov.net
