Refill of a Prescription Medication
IU Health Plans has taken steps to design the best care for you during this COVID-19 outbreak. You may now take advantage of:

- Relaxed refill restrictions
For our Commercial and Medicare customers, IU Health Plans is waiving early refill limits on up to three, 30-day prescription supplies for maintenance medications at any in-network pharmacy, in all states. This change applies to maintenance medications only. 30-day overrides are not available for specialty medications or controlled substances.

- Free home delivery
Participating CVS Pharmacies in our network have waived charges for home delivery of all prescription medications. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) encourages people at higher risk for COVID-19 complications to stay at home as much as possible, so this convenient option can help you avoid leaving your home for refills or new maintenance prescriptions. As always, there is no charge for delivery of prescriptions filled by the CVS Caremark Mail Service pharmacy, when you choose the mail order service.

CVS Caremark mail order form
Contact your doctor’s office for a prescription. If you need your prescription filled anytime within the next week, you will need to ask your doctor to write two prescriptions for your long-term medicines, one that you can fill immediately at a participating pharmacy, and the second for the mail order to be mailed to CVS Caremark.

Mail the order form, along with your prescription(s) to be shipped by mail. Include your payment to the CVS Caremark Mail Service Pharmacy address printed on the form. You will be required to make your prescription drug payments using an electronic check, Bill Me Later®, or a credit card (VISA®, MasterCard®, Discover® or American Express®). You can also pay by check or money order. You should not send cash.

IU Health Plans Public Forum December 1st at 3:30pm

IU Health Plans will conduct a public forum on December 1st at 3:30pm EST. The primary purpose of this event is to discuss premium changes and to gather feedback from the community on IU Health Plans insurance performance.

Key highlights regarding our premiums are as follows:

Commercial Premium increase for 2020 (filed in 2019):

- Our rate increase ranged from 7.6% to 12.7%

- Our average rate increase was 9.4%

- We added plans to accommodate a wider range of employer group needs

- Plan designs modified to: provide more cost-effective care, steer care to the appropriate providers, and reduce the cost of sharing to members


We are committed to reducing the cost of care while improving the quality of care by:

- Using care managers to help appropriate patients avoid unnecessary emergency room visits and hospital admission

- Helping patients leaving the hospital ensure they have the mediation, supplies and follow up appointments to avoid having to be readmitted

- Proactively engaging patients on preventative health services to keep them healthy

- Providing social work, dieticians, and pharmacy consultations for patients who may lack access
