Mail Service Member Select Program Offers Rx Savings Potential

September 4, 2014

UnitedHealthcare’s new Mail Service Member SelectSM program helps members better manage the medication they take on a regular basis through OptumRx® Mail Service Pharmacy. The program is being implemented across our fully insured accounts and will be offered as a buy-up for self-funded business. No self-funded clients are affected at this time. 

After two fills at a retail pharmacy, the program requires the use of home delivery for medication that is taken on a regular basis. However, the member can choose to decline mail service and continue filling their maintenance medication at a retail pharmacy at their normal cost share amount. If a member does not take any action, all additional fills may be at the full out-of-network cost.  

Participation in the mail service helps decrease disruption and provides more flexibility for members. Mail service pharmacy also presents potential cost-savings for the member.

As part of the transition plan, employer groups and members will receive a letter informing them about the program. An informational flier is also being provided to employers to help support them in member conversations about the Mail Service Member Select program. 

Please contact your UnitedHealthcare representative for more information.
