PCIP enrollees can purchase prescription drugs through the Express Scripts/Medco Pharmacy home delivery service or at a participating retail pharmacy.
Your costs for medication are determined by:
Express Scripts/Medco offers an Extended Payment Program (EPP) to make your mail-order prescriptions more affordable. When you enroll in EPP, you can spread your prescription payments over three installments. There is no waiting – your medication is shipped after the first payment. To get started with EPP, call the toll-free Express Scripts/Medco number on the back of your prescription card or visit www.medco.com.
You may also save money by using preferred drugs from the Express Scripts/Medco Drug Formulary. For example, brand-name drugs may have generic versions that may have lower copayments. Go to Preferred Prescriptions® for information and to access a formulary list of medications.

If you are a PCIP enrollee and you take medications on an ongoing basis, you could potentially save hundreds of dollars a year when you use Express Scripts/Medco's My Rx Choices online benefit service.
After you access My Rx Choices, you'll get a confidential and personalized prescription drug comparison, listing the drugs you're taking on an ongoing basis, your current out-of-pocket costs and any lower-cost alternatives – including lower-cost brand or generic drugs. From your personalized comparison, you can choose which lower-cost alternatives you want to try, confirm with your doctor that the alternatives are appropriate for you, and start saving money. Express Scripts/Medco will not make changes without your doctor's approval, and will notify you if and when changes are made.
