EFFECTIVE JULY 1ST – Pharmacy Benefits Manager Change

Posted 04 Jun 2019

As a reminder, we will be having a pharmacy change effective July 1, 2019.

As a results of Anthem recently launching their own Pharmacy Benefits Manager (PBM), SMP’s PBM, ExpressScripts, will be changing to IngenioRx effective July 1, 2019.

There will be no changes to our current pharmacy benefit design and you will not see any changes when picking up your prescriptions from retail pharmacies.

Effective July 1st you will need to fill your Home Delivery and/or Specialty Prescriptions through IngenioRx.

Good News! Starting July 1st you will have a CVS 90 Day Option in lieu of Home Delivery. You may pick up a 90-day supply at a CVS retail pharmacy. Just have your doctor send a 90-day prescription to your CVS location, or, a CVS store can also help contact your doctor to get a 90-day prescription for your medicine.
