Prescription Drug Plan
SAWS provides prescription coverage for both the PPO Economy Plan and the EPO Plus plan. The prescription drug plan is administered through Express Scripts, Inc.
Prescription Drug Formulary Change — There are occasional updates to the formulary for the prescription drug plan. So, while the plan benefits are not changing and there are no changes to the copays, you could see changes to your medication costs.
