This plan includes a mandatory Generic substitution program. Whenever a Generic drug is available, the Prescription Drug Plan shall only pay the amount normally allowed for the Generic drug. This means, in addition to paying the Generic Drug Co-Pay of $20.00, you will also be responsible for the difference in the cost of the Brand Name Drug and the Generic Drug. If your doctor mandates the Brand Name Drug, the difference in cost will not apply.

The plan also includes a mail order option. This option is useful for maintenance drugs prescribed on a regular basis. Please note that you receive a 100 day supply of your prescription drug through the mail order program for only $15.00 (Generic) and $20.00 (Brand Name)

Additional mail order forms are available at Sheet Metal Workers’ Local 270 Health & Welfare Office located at 1863 North 105th East Ave. in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
