Prescriptions

Summary

Your UT Select pharmacy benefits are administered by Express Scripts. Employees and their dependents covered by UT Select automatically receive this prescription coverage.

The plan requires a $100 annual deductible per person, per plan year.  After the deductible is met, co-payments apply, which are based on drug categories. The three drug categories are generic, preferred (name brand) and non-preferred (name brand) prescription drugs.

Enrollment Opportunities

Based on federal law, employees may make changes to their benefits only at the times specified below. As the prescription plan is part of the medical coverage, the same enrollment rules apply. 

At Hire

Within 31 days of hire, benefits eligible employees may add or change benefits.

At Annual Enrollment

Benefits eligible employees may make any changes to their benefits once a year, without a change of status during annual enrollment, which occurs each July.

Family Status Change

Certain events in your family or changes in your dependent’s employment or coverage may enable you to make changes to your benefits outside of annual enrollment. These events, known as Family Status Changes or qualifying events, allow changes to benefits that are consistent the event. (Ex: add medical coverage to your newborn child.) 

Benefit changes and supporting documentation must be received by myHR within 31 days of the event. Learn more about these qualifying events and documentation requirements
