Injectible Medications - Altius 

For most plans, Injectible medications follow your medical benefit rather than a pharmacy copay. Listed are the Injectible medications that follow the pharmacy benefit:

  • Insulin
  • Glucagon
  • Imitrex
  • Bee Sting Kits (Epi-Pen, Jr.)
  • Lovenox

All other covered Injectible are reimbursed at 70% to 90% (based on your plan design) when purchased at a retail pharmacy. Your payment will apply toward the out-of-pocket maximum.

If your Injectible benefit does follow a pharmacy copay schedule, you will pay the third tier copay level. You may refer to your medical benefits brochure for your actual benefit.
