Reminder: Formulary insulin dispensed at in-network pharmacies covered under HealthSelect pharmacy benefits without first having to pay the annual plan deductible

January 12, 2022

As of Sept. 1, 2021 HealthSelectSM Prescription Drug Program (PDP) participants no longer have to meet the deductible on covered insulin products. Your HealthSelectSM plan will pay its share of eligible insulin products before you meet the annual deductible. Copays and coinsurance for formulary insulin will still apply to your annual out-of-pocket maximum, as long as you purchase them from an in-network provider.


To learn more about the HealthSelect PDP’s insulin coverage and which products are covered, call an OptumRx customer care representative toll-free at (855) 828-9834 (TTY 711), 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
