Pharmacy Benefit Changes
Members of Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and Johns Hopkins Hospital/Johns Hopkins Health System Corporation (including Johns Hopkins HealthCare LLC and Johns Hopkins Home Care Group) EHP medical plans: several changes were made to your pharmacy benefits that went into effect January 1, 2017.
These include changes to the prescribing guide (formulary) as well as copay changes, including increased cost sharing for brand name medications for which there is a generic equivalent. Refer to the prescription schedule of benefits for more information on the impact of the copay changes. Please discuss any concerns or changes with your PCP, specialist or pharmacist for possible alternatives.
