Prescription Drug Benefits

When it comes to your medical prescriptions, you want two things: effectiveness and affordability. That’s why our Prescription Drug Program is designed to give our members the safest, highest quality medications available—and all at a reasonable price.

How do we accomplish this goal? Our Prescription Drug Program is maintained by the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Working Group, a committee of primarily pharmacists and physicians, that  approves clinical prescribing programs and drug formularies in order to create a prescription drug benefit program favorable for both employers and members.

Cost-effective, rigorously tested generic drugs are the cornerstone of the drug formulary. To optimize therapeutic care for a number of conditions, our Pharmacy and Therapeutics Working Group also chooses preferred brands that we provide for our members at the lowest brand copay. This system ensures that we can provide our members with the best medicine available for the lowest possible cost. Learn more about our copay structure and Preferred Drugs.

Here are some facts about our Prescription Drug Program:

  • Drug benefits are available in three of our commercial product lines (HMO, PPO, CDHP); Medicare Part D plans; and Ohio Managed Medicaid.
  • We are contracted with CVS/caremark for prescription processing, giving our members access to a national network of pharmacies. Mail order medications are available through Caremark.com
  • Paramount’s Prescription Drug Program includes our Specialty Drug Program. Through the Specialty Drug Program, members can get costly or difficult-to-obtain drugs from a trusted specialty network of hospitals, pharmacies and mail order. Learn more about Specialty Drugs.
