Benefit Structure

Historically, generic medications were typically the lowest-cost option for prescription medications. This is no longer true for all medications in today’s rapidly changing marketplace. As a result of this trend, Navitus has organized the formulary in a way that focuses more on value and less on generic vs. brand delineations.  The tiers on the formulary are structured as follows:

  • Tier 0: Certain preventative medications.
  • Tier 1: Low-cost, high-value generics and select brands that provide high clinical value. These products are the lowest-net cost for the plan and the lowest copayment for the member. 
  • Tier 2: Preferred brands and select generics that are less cost effective.  
  • Tier 3: Non-preferred brands and generics that provide the least value because of high cost or low clinical value, or both.

Prescription Max Out-of-Pocket:   Individual $1,800 / Family $3,600
