Medications can play an important role in maintaining your health.
UnitedHealthcare has teamed up with OptumRx as your care provider to help you find out what medications are covered, check out ways to lower your costs, see how to fill your prescriptions, and more.
When it comes to coverage, keep in mind that some medications may have requirements before filling them. Also, if a medication doesn't fit your budget, it's a good idea to remember your doctor is here to help—talk to them about lower cost options.
The easiest way to find out if a prescription is covered is to check the Prescription Drug List (PDL) — which takes the most commonly prescribed medications and organizes them into cost tiers. For more on the PDL, see the Prescription Costs section.
Medications used to treat complex or rare conditions may need to be obtained from a specialty pharmacy. You may also be able to use our specialty pharmacy for ongoing support. Learn more by visiting.
