In most cases, prescription drugs are covered under the standard provisions of your medical plan’s drug program. The cost to you will depend on whether or not the drug is generic, brand name or non-formulary. Some plans require you to enroll in one of their stop smoking programs before you have access to the drugs. Costs for these drugs may be different than other prescription drugs under your plan.
