Retiree - Prescription Benefit Overview
All UK health plan members have a prescription drug benefit administered directly by Express Scripts and not through your medical plan. However, the coverage varies depending on your Medicare status. See the left navigation bar for details. Enrollment in the prescription plan is automatic with your enrollment in any of the UK health plans. Members are issued a prescription benefit card separate from their health plan card and will typically not receive a new prescription benefit card every year. Once issued, the original prescription benefit card will work in subsequent plan years. To order a replacement ID card, contact the Employee Benefits Office at (859) 257-9555 and select option 3.
Express Scripts is the pharmacy benefit manager that provides 24-hour customer service, web-based drug information, and an integrated mail service pharmacy. This is a single point of contact for all your prescription benefit needs.
