EXPRESS SCRIPTS MEDICARE RETIREE PRESCRIPTION PLAN

Open Enrollment is October 14 - 25, 2013
for
Highmark Delaware Special Medicfill and
Express Scripts Medicare (PDP) for the State of Delaware

2014 Plan Year: January 1-December 31, 2014

  • If you are already enrolled in Medicare A and B and Special Medicfill with prescription coverage, and you wish to keep this coverage, you do not need to take any action. Your enrollment will remain as it is now.
  • If you are enrolled in Special Medicfill without prescription coverage, you may enroll in the State's Medicare Retiree prescription plan, Express Scripts Medicare (PDP) for the State of Delaware, during this period for an effective date of January 1, 2014.
  • If you are not enrolled in Special Medicfill now, you may enroll during this period for an effective date of January 1, 2014. You may select Special Medicfill with prescription coverage or Special Medicfill without prescription coverage.

Coverage through another Medicare Part D prescription drug plan is not allowed if you wish to retain your coverage through the Express Scripts Medicare PDP for the State of Delaware. If you enroll in a Medicare prescription drug plan, other than the Express Scripts Medicare PDP for the State of Delaware, prescription drug coverage through the State of Delaware for you and your eligible dependents will terminate. Your enrollment in this plan is administered only by the State of Delaware so you should not enroll in a prescription plan directly with Medicare for this coverage.

  • Retirees and/or their dependents must enroll in Medicare A and B when eligible due to age or disability, and a signed copy of the Medicare card must be submitted to the Office of Pensions or to the non-State participating group's benefits office prior to enrollment in the Highmark Delaware Special Medicfill with Prescription Coverage Plan.
  • When the enrollment is submitted, members will first receive a pre-notification letter from Express Scripts, and they will receive new identification cards in the Welcome Kit a few weeks later.
