Effective May 16, 2012, Express Scripts will become the new vendor for the State of Maryland prescription plan. Information and new ID cards have been mailed to all participants. Anyone enrolled in any level of dependent coverage will receive two ID cards. If you need additional cards you can request them by calling the Express Scripts member services.
There will be a red sticker on your ID cards with the following message:
ACTIVATE YOUR ONLINE BENEFITS AT
ANY TIME AFTER YOUR COVERAGE BEGINS.
This refers to activating your online account, NOT activating your benefits. Benefits are automatically in effect on May 16th. No action is required to “activate” the card before using it at a pharmacy.
Allergy serums will be covered under the medical plans beginning July 1, 2012. They will continue to be covered under the pharmacy program through June 30, 2012 with Express Scripts as they are now under Catalyst Rx.
