Pharmacy Benefits Information
IMPORTANT NOTE: All PAI members need to go through this Web site for accurate preferred drug information.
PAI administers pharmacy benefits utilizing its preferred pharmacy benefit manager, CVS Caremark. CVS Caremark is the nation's premier integrated pharmacy services provider, combining one of the nation's leading pharmaceutical services companies with the country's largest pharmacy chain. The company fills or manages more than one billion prescriptions per year, more than any other pharmacy services provider.
CVS Caremark's pharmacy networks feature deep discounts from average wholesale prices. Plans can be structured with tiered co-payments to encourage use of generic and preferred drugs, or mail order where possible. When group members show their ID cards at participating pharmacies, they don't have to file claims or wait for reimbursement.
NOTE: Not all benefit plans are the same. If you want to use a national chain pharmacy, please know that your benefit may restrict the pharmacy that you use. You should always check with your pharmacy to see if it is part of our network before you have your prescriptions filled.
CuraScript Specialty Pharmacy dispenses and manages the oral and self-administered specialty drug portion of the prescription drug benefit. CuraScript is an independent company that provides specialty pharmacy services. CuraScript offers members the following benefits:
Confidential and convenient delivery of their specialty drug to the location of their choice — when they need it and at no additional charge
