SmartD Rx Member FAQ
If you receive a prescription order from your physician, present it along with your SmartD Rx ID card at the participating pharmacy of your choice. Once you receive your medication you will be asked to pay a co-payment as required by your program; the remainder of the cost of your prescription will be paid by your plan sponsor.
If your contact information or eligibility status changes, please call Member Services.

If you have recently used your ID card at a pharmacy, they may have your card information on file in their computer system.

A brand name drug is a prescription drug manufactured and marketed under a trademark by a specific drug manufacturer. It is the proprietary or patent protected product usually available from only one manufacturer.
A generic medication is a prescription drug that has the same active ingredients as a brand name drug. Generic drugs usually cost less than brand name drugs and are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as safe and effective.
A multisource drug is a brand name drug whose patent has expired and for which generic drug equivalents are available on the market.
Certain medications in your program may require a prior authorization. You or your physician may need to provide additional information to make the determination before you may get your prescription filled. If you do not get approval, we may not cover the medication and you will be responsible for the full cost of the drug.
When lower cost, alternative medications are available to treat your condition, you may be required to try an alternative drug before your prescribed medication may be covered. If you have tried other medications and you and your prescriber do not think the other medications are right for your situation, you may request that this medication be covered.
Some medications have a restriction or a limit to the number of doses that may be covered for a specific day supply. Quantity limits are for your own safety and to ensure proper use of the drug. If your prescriber requests a quantity greater than the specific limit, you may request an authorization for the plan to cover the prescribed amount.
You can download and print the Authorized Representative form here to complete and mail back to us along with any applicable documentation that is required or you can call Member Services.
If you have a power of attorney that assists you in making general healthcare decisions, you can let us know by calling Member Services and receiving information about sending in such paperwork based on the rules of your state.
Medicare provides Extra Help to pay prescription drug costs for people who have limited income and resources. If you qualify, you receive help paying for any Medicare drug plan’s monthly premium, yearly deductible, and prescription copayments or coinsurance. This Extra Help also counts toward your out-of-pocket costs. You must continue to pay your Medicare Part B premium.
Some people automatically qualify for Extra Help and don't need to apply. Medicare mails a letter to people who automatically qualify for Extra Help.
