ERS Announces New Prescription Drug Plan January 1, 2017
Beginning January 1, 2017, employees enrolled in a HealthSelect health plan with ERS will have a new prescription drug pharmacy manager, OptumRx.
OptumRx is part of United HealthCare, the company that administers the HealthSelect health plans. While the prescription drug benefits are not changing, there may be a few differences in the drug formulary (list of approved drugs) and pharmacy network. For more information, please review this ERS Benefits-at-a-Glance.
If you are enrolled in HealthSelect of Texas or Consumer Directed HealthSelect, you should have received a new ID card to use for medical appointments and at the pharmacy. Begin showing your new ID card to your medical providers and network pharmacies on January 1. If you have not received your ID card, please contact OptumRx at (866) 336-9371 (TTY: 711.)
