Preventive Prescription Drug OptionPreventive medications are prescribed to prevent the occurrence of a disease or condition with risk factors such as: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, asthma, osteoporosis, heart attack and stroke, or to prevent the recurrence of the disease or condition for individuals who have recovered. Preventive medications do not include drugs used to treat an existing illness, injury or condition.
For some pharmacy plans that require you to pay
a certain amount before the plan coverage begins,
preventive medications may be covered before
you reach that amount. To be sure, you should read

medications are covered specific to your plan.
