    CoPay Cards and Free Drug Programs - Policy Profile

    Posted by Unity Health Insurance on October 5, 2016

    Drug companies may offer introductory programs that let you get free drugs, either by giving it to you, or by covering the cost of your copayment. This may seem very helpful right now, but these programs are causing increased health care costs that you can end up paying for in the long run. Having preferred drugs on formulary allows Unity to provide sustainable, affordable and cost-effective care. Many drugs require you to meet certain criteria before coverage is provided under your prescription benefits. Getting your medications free or with discounts from drug company programs may offer you short term out of pocket savings, but can increase your overall costs.

    It is important to perform a yearly medication cabinet check-up to look for expired drugs or ones you no longer use.
