Prescription coverage is included with both of our health plans and is processed by Express Scripts.
The prescription deductible for the base health plan is $125 per covered member, with out-of-pocket maximums of $1,600 per person, or up to $2,800 for family plan participants. Prescription co-pays under the base plan are not applied toward the medical plan deductible or out-of-pocket limits.
High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP)
There are no co-pays under the HDHP. Employees with the HDHP will pay 100% of prescription charges until the deductible is met, at which point the plan pays 80% of eligible in-network prescription expenses until the out-of-pocket maximum is met. All out-of-pocket prescription charges are applied to the HDHP deductible and out-of-pocket limits.
The HDHP also provides generic preventive prescription benefits payable at 100%. See the list of covered generic medications here.
Compound drugs in excess of $250 require pre-authorization. Get the list of drugs that require pre-authorization here.

There’s never been a more important time to get your flu shot. A flu shot is one of the most effective ways to prevent the flu and keep you and your family safe.
Acadian employees can get a free flu shot—administered by Acadian HSE staff—at the beginning of each flu season. Details about when and how to get the shot are posted to Acadian Central. You also have the option to get a flu shot from your doctor or a local pharmacy. Flu shots administered in a doctor’s office or retail pharmacy (CVS, Walgreen’s, etc.) are covered at 100% for all individuals covered under an Acadian health plan (including spouses and dependents).
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that anyone over the age of six months get a flu shot each flu season (October – May). Some people have a higher risk for developing flu-related complications. If you have chronic conditions – such as asthma, heart disease, diabetes or chronic kidney disease – you should make getting the flu shot a high priority. The same is true for people who are 65 and older.
