  3. Express Scripts is authorizing payment to pharmacies for up to a 90-day supply of any prescription medication for individuals, regardless of when the prescription was filled.
  4. A&M Care plan members, as well as those on the student insurance and graduate student employee plan, can receive telemedicine services from their network physicians who provide it, for medically-necessary, covered medical and behavioral health services for a zero copay until April 30th. The claim must indicate services were provided via telemedicine/telehealth.
  5. The copay for MDLIVE telehealth services has been temporarily reduced to a $0 for all A&M Care members, until further notice. Those enrolled in the student insurance and graduate student employee plan have a $0 copay through April 30.
  6. The A&M System Benefits Administration office has extended the wellness incentive program completion date to August 31, 2020. There are several checklist activities, such as Well onTarget Self-Management Programs, educational HealthQuests, and MDLIVE registration, that can be completed digitally/virtually and members are encouraged to participate in those programs to promote their health and wellbeing. MyEvive is accessed through their website or directly through sso. Further information can be found on the System Benefits Administration website.
  7. Due to the closing of day cares and employers directing employees to work from home, enrolled employees are eligible to reduce their dependent day care flexible spending account contributions through a Life Event Benefit Change. They will be able to change their deductions again when they return to work, as it will still be considered a Life Event.
