University selects new pharmacy benefit manager

UT employees: A new pharmacy prescription card will arrive in your mailbox this month.

Effective Jan. 1, the University will have a new pharmacy benefit manager, Healthcare Highways RX, which is based in Frisco, Texas.

The mission of Healthcare Highways RX is to offer employers and providers a choice in the delivery of health care in local markets by creating competition in order to reduce health-care costs.

“This move will help The University of Toledo to provide an improved prescription benefit to the UT family,” Wendy Davis, associate vice president of human resources, said.

Faculty and staff members who fill prescriptions at UT outpatient pharmacies will automatically have their new insurance information updated in the computer system.

Those who fill prescriptions at other pharmacies will need to show the new Healthcare Highways RX insurance card.

“As a reminder for those who choose to fill prescriptions at outside pharmacies, be aware that your out-of-pocket medication costs may be significantly lower if you opt to fill prescriptions at one of our UT pharmacies,” Cindy Puffer, managed care pharmacy operations manager at UT Medical Center, said.
