Prescription Drug Plan

The Rhodes Prescription Drug Plan is part of the Medical Benefit Plan. Therefore, all full-time faculty and staff categories A and B who participate in the College’s Medical Benefit Plan are eligible to participate in the Prescription Drug Plan. Effective July 1, 1996, all eligible employees and retirees may obtain prescription drugs at a negotiated price for themselves and their eligible dependents from any pharmacy that participates in the Rhodes Express Scripts Program.

The Plan’s Prescription Drug Card Program is administered by Express Scripts, Inc.  Express Scripts, Inc. has a network of pharmacies that participate in our plan. The preferred pharmacies can identify covered persons and the Plan’s coverage provisions.  To find out which pharmacies participate, contact Express Scripts, Inc at 1-800-451-6245.

Benefits are provided for the purchase of drugs through the Plan’s Prescription Drug Card Program.  The covered person must purchase the prescription drugs through the Prescription Drug Card Program, and use either a participating pharmacy or the mail order option.
