Choice Plus – The plan provides in-network and out-of-network benefits.
View the copays and benefits.
Prescription Drug – Retirees who enroll in the LCRA group medical plan automatically receive prescription coverage through UHC. The plan categorizes prescription drugs into three pricing tiers, with additional tiers for specialty drugs.
Review the pricing tiers and copays. UHC provides a
prescription drug list that shows the pricing tiers for the most commonly prescribed medications. It's organized by the type of medication so you and your doctor can see all the covered medications for specific conditions. If you are now taking a medication that is excluded in 2020 and there is no reasonable covered alternative, it will be grandfathered into your 2020 prescription coverage.
For your convenience you can fill a 90-day supply of maintenance prescriptions at a retail pharmacy. The cost would be the equivalent of paying for three months. You also have the option to save money by filling prescriptions via mail order.
Participants won't receive a new ID card as the plan is the same.
UHC participants also have access to additional benefits:
Virtual Visits offers 24-hour telemedicine support from the comfort of your home and the copay is now $0.
Spine & Joint Solution connects you with a dedicated team to help you understand treatment choices, where to go for care and potentially lower out-of-pocket costs.
2nd.MD – offers a free second medical opinion on a current or new diagnosis, treatment options and can help you manage chronic conditions.
Medical information is also available through the
Health4Me mobile app.
Participants in the UHC Choice Plus program must complete and return the tobacco affidavit to confirm their tobacco use status. If you use tobacco products or do not return the form, participants will pay the tobacco premium. Participate in the
free Quit for Life program by Nov. 30, 2020, and the additional fees paid in 2020 will be reimbursed to you.
