Prescription Drug Plan
If you enroll in any of Mount Sinai's medical plans, whether a PPO or HMO option, you automatically receive basic prescription drug coverage. Mount Sinai's prescription vendor is Medco. Your prescription plan options are:
- Express Scripts Basic Plan
- Express Scripts Plus Plan
- Express Scripts High Deductible Health Plan
With either the basic or enhanced option, there are several ways to receive prescription drugs, including in-store or on-line. Another excellent choice is to use the in-house Employee Pharmacy to purchase both generic and brand-name drugs. Call the pharmacy at x47720 to be sure that they stock the drug (we have a limited drug formulary). The pharmacy is on the B1 level of the Annenberg Building, and is open 8:30am – 5:00pm. weekdays. You can drop off your prescription in the morning and pick it up later in the day (avoid lunch hour, the busiest time). Co-payments can be made to the cashier adjacent to the pharmacy. If the prescription is a refill, use the refill phone line, x40485 and pick the prescription up later. Be sure to bring your employee ID.
If you decline medical coverage through Mount Sinai, you are not eligible for the prescription drug coverage benefit.
Prescription drug costs not covered by Express Scripts may be eligible for reimbursement through the Health Care Reimbursement Account (HCRA).
Note: All benefits and programs are subject to change from time to time in accordance with institutional policy. A full policy description is available on the intranet.
