Prescription Drug Coverage
Prescription drug coverage for you and your covered dependents is included with the ECU Health Medical Plan. MedImpact administers the prescription drug benefit for all ECU Health Medical Plan participants. If you enroll in one of the medical plans, your prescription drug coverage is provided.
When you or a covered family member need a prescription filled, you may use your medical ID card at the ECU Health Employee Pharmacy or a retail pharmacy that participates in the pharmacy network. You pay a share of the cost of your prescription in the form of a copay or coinsurance. The amount you pay depends on whether you receive a generic, preferred brand or non-preferred brand name drug and which pharmacy you choose. Questions about ECU Health prescription drug benefits?

Once a covered family member meets the individual out-of-pocket maximum, the plan will pay the full cost of covered charges for that family member. Charges for all covered family members will continue to count toward the family out-of-pocket maximum. The annual out-of-pocket maximum includes amounts paid toward your deductible.
We will no longer cover free medication for chronic conditions other than ACA required categories and diabetes. ACA required categories include Hyperlipidemia and smoking cessation. The plan will continue to waive copays for diabetes prescriptions filled from the Employee Pharmacy if you participate in coaching to treat and manage diabetes as part of the ECU Health Wellness or MedCost Care Management programs.
New for 2023
If you take chronic/maintenance medications, you will be able to get a 90-day prescription at the Employee Pharmacy for the equivalent cost of 2.5 rather than 3 full copays.
