High Option Pharmacy Program

The High Option has contracted with 63,000 retail pharmacies throughout the country. These pharmacies belong to the Express Scripts® Health Prescription Solutions network, and the pharmacies discount their charges and bill the Health Plan automatically for you.

The High Option Plan also offers a convenient mail order program for our members with long-term prescription needs. Both programs offer no deductible and low copayments.

New for 2019

Members can obtain maintenance drugs at an in-network Smart90 retail pharmacy, which includes CVS and Walgreen's.
