Fellowship Recipients

On this page: Medical | Prescription drugs | Mental health | Vision

Effective July 1, 2019, prescription coverage for Fellowship Recipients will be managed by IngenioRx, Anthem’s new pharmacy benefit manager. No changes are being made to the drug formulary (what’s covered under your plan) as a result of the transition.

In May, you received a welcome letter introducing you to IngenioRx. Your current Anthem insurance card can continue to be used and if you have a current prior authorization, it will remain in place. Anthem also sent targeted letters in May to both members who use home delivery and who fill specialty medications through Accredo to provide information on how you will be transitioned to IngenioRx pharmacies. Please refer to these letters for more information and steps to take to ensure you can fill your medication on or after July 1.

If you have a problem filling a prescription after July 1, you can call member services at 800-345-2460. This number is also on the back of your ID card.

For more information and to ensure you have the right ID card to fill prescriptions, visit this FAQ on IngenioRx (PDF).
