Express Scripts, the State Health Plan pharmacy benefits manager for 2016, recently mailed a required EGWP pre-notification letter to Medicare-eligible retirees and Medicare-eligible dependents of retirees. Active employees and dependents of active employees who are eligible for Medicare and for whom the State Health Plan is the primary insurer may have received a letter in error.
Active employees and dependents of active employees will not be enrolled in the EGWP plan effective January 1, 2016, and should disregard the letter. EGWP is a Medicare Part D prescription drug program for retirees and dependents of retirees who are not active employees of a State Health Plan participating employer.
