Your Pharmacy Benefit

You make decisions about your health care every day – and, as the most-used health benefit, your pharmacy decisions may top the list. UnitedHealthcare is here to help you make the most informed and cost-effective decisions when it comes to your prescription medications.

Get the best price on your prescriptions

We want to help you get the most out of your prescription benefit. For example, you might wonder, “Are generics always my lowest cost option?”

The answer might surprise you. While generics are usually less expensive than brand medications, it’s not true that they are always the lowest cost option. Occasionally, generic medications may be more expensive than their brand counterparts when they are initially introduced into the market.

So you’ll want to take full advantage of the tools and resources you’ll find described on this sheet to make sure you’re getting the best value.
