UPDATE FOR ACTIVE MEMBERS ONLY: Effective April 1, 2016 please be advised under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) most preventive medications are now available at a $0 copay if you meet the mandated requirements. The list includes over the counter medication as well as prescription medication, but in order for it to be covered at $0 your physician must write you a prescription. For example, Aspirin 81mg is an over-the-counter medication (OTC). Although an OTC you are required to get a written prescription in order for it to qualify for $0 copay coverage. Please refer to the sidebar for a complete list of ACA Preventive Services.
