Prescription Drug Service Information

BENEFITS EVENTS CALENDAR

Have questions about Case Western Reserve University's new prescription drug plans, including how to fill a new short- or long-term medication? This page outlines the information you need to start or continue your prescriptions.

Note: The following applies to only enrollees in the Anthem PPO, Medical Mutual PPO, & Anthem HDHP.

Acute or New Maintenance Prescriptions

If you have a new long-term (maintenance) prescription or were recently prescribed a short-term (acute) medication: 

  • Fill the prescription at retail pharmacies 
  • Prescriptions must be sent directly by physician or paper prescription
  • New maintenance prescriptions can be filled by mail if the initial prescription is written for 90 days
  • New maintenance medications may be filled for 30 days or 90 days at participating retail pharmacies 

    • Maintenance medications filled for 90 days at a retail pharmacy will be charged 3 thirty-day co-payments
  • The retail pharmacy may apply co-pay coupons or other applicable financial assistance programs

Pro Tip: 

Ask the pharmacist for the “cash price” of the medication—it may be cheaper without insurance.


90-Day Maintenance Prescriptions Through Mail Order

Effective July 1, 2019, MedImpact will be the university’s sole provider for mail-order prescriptions. Learn more about the transition from Direct Scripts.
