We have partnered with
for prescription drug benefits effective
January 1, 2019
. OptumRx will replace Express Scripts as our pharmacy benefit manager to provide you with quality, cost-effective services for retail and mail order prescription benefits.
We will ensure your transition to OptumRx is as smooth as possible. Prior to January 1, affected members will receive a new HMAA ID card. Members should discard any old cards and ensure they present only the
card to their healthcare providers and pharmacies beginning January 2019.
The vast majority of our local participating pharmacies will not change. For added convenience, members may also visit participating pharmacies on the Mainland, or order up to a 90-day supply of maintenance medications through home delivery.
Our prescription drug formulary will change to the OptumRx Preferred Drug List and may result in a change to the copayment on certain drugs. Everyone impacted will receive a notice from Optum later this month. Members may contact our Customer Service Center at 941-4622, toll-free at (888) 941-4622, or email
for more information.
