The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) continues to bring changes to our health insurance plan.  Our prescription benefit manager, Navitus is taking the necessary requirements to be compliant with the amendment to the PPACA regarding women’s preventative care.  This act requires certain preventative care services to be available at no cost to the member.

In order to be compliant with the PPACA, the Navitus formulary will cover the following birth control methods effective September 1, 2012.

·         Oral contraceptives—All Tier One generics.  (Please refer to list below for covered drugs.)
·         Nuvaring and Ortho Evra.
·         All formulary diaphragms.
·         Emergency contraceptives.

If you need assistance regarding prescription questions and concerns, please contact Navitus at 877-571-7500 or visit their website at www.navitus.com to access the School District of Janesville’s complete drug formulary.  Remember you are your best healthcare consumer!
