Prescription Drugs with the HSA Option

With the HSA option, most prescription drugs are covered like any other medical expense. Your prescription drug costs are a part of your medical deductible. There’s no difference in the cost for different tiers of prescription drugs; you pay the same coinsurance for generics, preferred brand name and non-preferred brand name drugs. Once you meet your deductible, you and Rockwell Automation begin to share your prescription drug costs.

Brand Penalty

A brand penalty is what you pay if you choose to fill your prescription with the brand name drug instead of the available direct generic version. The penalty amount is the difference between what the brand name drug costs and what the generic drug costs.

If you are prescribed a drug that does not have a generic version and is not on the indirect generic list, you will not be charged the brand penalty for filling that brand name drug.

Brand Penalty Does Not Count Toward Deductible or Out-of-Pocket Maximum

The brand penalty, or cost you pay for filling the brand name drug versus the generic drug, does not count toward your deductible or out-of-pocket maximum.

Compound Drugs

Compound drug prescriptions that cost more than $300 require prior authorization.

Save Money with Generics

Generic drugs may look a little different than the brand name prescriptions, but they are just as effective, and they consist of identical ingredients in the same formulation. Plus, every ingredient that goes into a generic drug must be approved by the FDA.

If your pharmacy fills a brand name medication for any reason and a generic is available, you will pay the difference between the brand name and the generic, plus the brand coinsurance.

Save money and go generic the next time you’re at the pharmacy.
