Depending on your insurance plan, you may have coverage for prescription medications either through the Caremark program or by the Discount Pharmacy card.
Caremark: You should have a plastic Caremark card with your name, ID number, and other identifying information that will allow the Pharmacy to access your prescription benefits online and dispense your medication accordingly. There are toll-free numbers in the back of the cards where you can call for questions or if you are having trouble getting your prescription filled.
Dropping Off: Simply hand your Caremark card and prescription to the pharmacy personnel, this will allow the pharmacy to determine if you are eligible for the benefit and if you are responsible for any cost (i.e., deductible, co pay). Make sure the prescription has the Date of Birth of the person that the medication is for.
Picking Up: When picking up your prescription, you will be told by the pharmacy how much you have to pay for the prescription; this depends on your prescription benefits, refer back to your Table of Benefits. If your plan calls for Full Refund of prescription benefits, then you will not have to pay for the medication. If you plan requires you to pay a deductible or co-pay, you will be required to pay this amount before you can take your medications home (these amounts are not reimbursable.)
Discount Pharmacy Card: Through your membership with your Insurance Company or Payor and the relationship with Olympus Managed Health Care, you have the benefit of applying for a Discount Pharmacy Card, which will give you access to reduced prices on your prescription drugs when you go to a participating pharmacy.

Present your card to the pharmacy personnel when you drop off your prescription and you will be advised of the price you will pay for the medication.
When you pick up your medications, you must pay the discount price in full. Make sure to keep the original receipt and a copy of the prescription so that you can claim your reimbursement for the cost of medications covered by your plan (see Applying for Reimbursement).
