SilverScript Insurance Company, a CVS Caremark Company, Provides Variety of Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Options for 2009
-- SilverScript Complete - a zero-deductible plan that includes coverage
of generic medications through retail or mail order pharmacies during
the coverage gap. The plan also features reduced copays on Value Tier
Generics at preferred retail and mail pharmacies, with copays as low
as $6 for a 90-day supply of certain generics by mail.
-- SilverScript Plus - a low deductible plan that offers discounted
copays for specified generic and branded medications (Value Tier
Generics and Value Tier Brands) at preferred retail and mail
pharmacies. Generics are covered through the coverage gap, with
significantly lower copays available through preferred retail and mail
pharmacies, with copays as low as $10 for a 90 day supply of some
generics at mail.
-- SilverScript Value - a low-premium plan that offers access to many
brand, generic and specialty medications. This plan is ideal for
Medicare-eligible beneficiaries who currently take only a few
medications, but want to be enrolled in a plan with comprehensive
coverage in the event that their health needs change.
"Medicare beneficiaries will again have three SilverScript plan offerings to consider when selecting the prescription drug coverage plan that best fits their health care and medication needs," said Jim Maritan, Vice President, Medicare Part D Services, CVS Caremark. "Medicare beneficiaries who select a SilverScript plan also benefit from our Proactive Pharmacy Care(TM) approach, which is designed to ensure patients have easy access to information about their medications and can learn how to best handle their pharmacy health care needs for optimal health outcomes."
