  • Obtain Maintenance Medications through Walgreens or Home Delivery. For your convenience, you may fill 90-day maintenance prescriptions at a local Walgreens pharmacy or through the OptumRx Home Delivery (mail-order) service. Participant cost share and cost to HealthFlex will be the same under either option.
  • Behavioral Health Benefits Changes. Behavioral health benefits will have the same in-network and out-of-network co-payments and/or deductible and co-insurance as your medical plan benefits. However, behavioral health outpatient office visits with an out-of-network provider will be covered at in-network levels up to a “reasonable and customary” amount. (See benefits booklets for details.)
  • OptumRx Formulary Changes. Some Medications Not Covered. Certain medications with no clear clinical advantage will no longer be covered if a comparable alternative is available, as part of the HealthFlex and OptumRx commitment to keeping costs lower. OptumRx will contact impacted participants directly beginning in November about medications no longer covered.
  • Nurseline* through your Medical Carrier. When you aren’t sure if you need to contact a physician, you can call the nurseline number on your 2019 medical ID card 24/7 with questions about symptoms, an injury or general health questions.
  • Virgin Pulse Rewards Changes. Watch for upcoming communications on Virgin Pulse’s streamlined approach to earning incentives in 2019.
    • MDLIVE telemedicine and nurseline services do not replace the expertise of your personal physician or other primary care provider (PCP). Consult your PCP for more comprehensive diagnostics and guidance.
