At a preferred pharmacy there is no copay for a T1 generic drug used to treat conditions such as diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure, while the copay for approximately another 1,000 T2 generic medications is $3. The plan also offers lower first-dollar coverage and lower deductibles for both T1 and T2 generic medications. Participants receive access to 24-hour customer service.
