Prescription drugs are an essential health benefit and are included in your medical coverage. You can obtain prescription drugs from pharmacies contracted with SummaCare located throughout the service area. You can save money on prescription copays by ordering maintenance drugs through our mail order pharmacy.
SummaCare’s partnership with our pharmacy benefit manager provides quality pharmacy benefits to our members. All SummaCare plans include comprehensive prescription drug benefits, but your prescription drug coverage varies by the plan in which you are enrolled.

Our outpatient prescription drug benefit is a generic-based program. You will receive a generic drug unless no generic equivalent exists or the prescribing physician indicates that there cannot be a generic substitute for a specific brand name product by indicating Dispense As Written (DAW) on the prescription.
Drugs that are marketed under a proprietary, trademark-protected name. Brand name drugs are patented and can only be sold by the company with the patent.
Drugs that are equivalent of brand name drugs in dosage form, safety, strength, route of administration, quality, performance characteristics and intended use. All generic drugs approved by FDA have the same high quality, strength, purity and stability as brand name drugs.
Some medications require prior authorization before they can be filled by a pharmacy. This means your physician needs to complete a Medication Request form including appropriate medical information and submit it as directed so proper assessment can be made of the need for the prescription.
If your drug is not included in the formulary (list of covered drugs), you can ask SummaCare to make an exception to our coverage rules. There are several types of exceptions that you can ask us to make.
If you paid out-of-pocket for your prescription drugs and would like to request reimbursement, please complete the Commercial Prescription Drug Claim Form and send it, along with the appropriate prescription receipts/labels to:
