  1. 1. Rocky Mountain UFCW Union & Employers Health Benefit Plan Four-Tier Plan 2012 Cigna prescription drug list This list is designed to cover your prescription medications at four levels. The amount you will pay will depend on the tier from which you and your doctor select your medication. If there is more than one drug appropriate for your condition, we encourage you to talk to your doctor about low cost medications like generics and preferred brands, as they will help to manage your prescription costs better. 853379 02/12 Value PDL
  2. 2. 1st Tier – Generic Medications: Generic drugs have the same active ingredients, safety, dosage, quality and strength, as their brand-name counterparts. You will usually pay less for generic medications under your plan. 2nd Tier – Preferred Brand Medications: Preferred brand drugs will usually cost you more than a generic, but less than a non-preferred brand drug under your plan. 3rd Tier – Non-Preferred Brand Medications: Non-preferred brand drugs are those that generally have generic alternatives and/or one or more preferred brand options within the same drug class. You will usually pay more for a non-preferred brand under your plan. 4th Tier – Specialty Medications: Specialty Injectable Medications are typically covered under the fourth tier and include, but are not limited to, injectables used to treat arthritis, multiple sclerosis, hepatitis C, and asthma. See the list of Specialty medications on page 22. Understanding the Cigna Prescription Drug List Every medication available on the drug list has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This list represents the most commonly prescribed medications. Please reference or myCigna. com for the complete up-to-date listing of medications.

The symbols on the list mean … If your medication has one of the following symbols, your doctor may have to get an authorization for coverage. PA: Prior Authorization may be required for different reasons. To learn the requirements needed for coverage of a specific medication, please give us a call. QL: Quantity Limit means you may have coverage for a limited amount of a specific medication. AGE: Age Requirement means a person may be within a specific age group for a specific medication to be covered.
