All Marketplace programs provide prescription drugs. Fill any medication you received from your doctor and take them exactly as directed. Below are three things you should learn about filling prescriptions:

  • You may be required to pay a prescription copayment. A copayment is a fee you must pay for each prescription you fill. Typically, copayments range from $0 to $50, depending on your health coverage.
  • Check with your state agency to see if preauthorization (also known as “prior approval”) is required. Your health plan might need preauthorization for specific medicines unless it’s an emergency.
  • Based on your insurance plan, you may be able to obtain your medications from a variety of pharmacies (known as “in-network pharmacies”). Contact your health insurer, or search their website to discover which pharmacies are included in their network.
