Prescriptions & Part D

As a Santa Clara Family Health Plan DualConnect (HMO D-SNP), (SCFHP DualConnect) member, you can fill your prescription at over 200 pharmacy locations in Santa Clara County and at chain pharmacies nationwide. To fill your prescription, show your SCFHP DualConnect member ID card and your prescription to any participating pharmacy. You can also get a 90-day supply of most prescription maintenance medications for the same copay as a 30-day supply. Talk to your doctor about getting a prescription for a 90-day supply. You can pick it up at a network pharmacy or have it mailed to you. To find out more about our mail-order services, visit www.medimpactdirect.com or refer to the SCFHP DualConnect Member Handbook in Member Materials.

SCFHP DualConnect will usually cover your drugs as long as you follow the rules:

  • You must have a doctor or other healthcare provider write your prescription.
  • You must use a network pharmacy to fill your prescription.
  • Your drug must be on the SCFHP DualConnect List of Covered Drugs (Formulary), also called the "Drug List" for short.
  • You must meet any applicable coverage requirements or limits on use.

When a safe, lower-cost drug will work just as well as a higher-cost drug, we expect your provider to prescribe the lower-cost drug.

For more information on your prescriptions and Part D benefits and services, click the + buttons below or refer to the SCFHP DualConnect Member Handbook and List of Covered Drugs available in Member Materials in multiple languages.

Frequently asked questions

What is your copay as an SCFHP DualConnect member?

Tiers are groups of drugs on our plan’s Drug List. Every drug on our Drug List is in one tier. You have no copays for prescription and OTC drugs on our Drug List. To find the tiers for your drugs, refer to our Drug List.

Tier 1 drugs are generic, brand name, and biosimilar drugs. The copay is $0.

Drug transition policy & process

If you are new to SCFHP DualConnect or your level of care changes, there may be drugs you are taking that are not on the Drug List. In this case, you may still be able to fill your prescription.

See Drug Transition Policy & Process for more information.

Coverage decisions & exceptions

For certain prescription drugs, special rules limit how and when SCFHP DualConnect covers them. In general, our rules encourage you to get a drug that works for your medical condition that is safe and effective.

If you or your provider thinks our rules should not apply to your situation, you should ask us to make an exception. You may also request drugs not on our Drug List to be covered. This is called a formulary exception.

For more information, see Coverage Decisions & Exceptions.
