5.1 Generic Equivalent Requirement

Under the Mandatory Generic Prescription Drug Plan, you must fill a prescription with a generic equivalent, whenever it is available.

If you or your doctor requests a brand name drug instead of a generic equivalent, you will be charged the difference in cost between the brand name drug and the generic equivalent, plus the applicable co-payment.
