Prescriptions 80% of the covered costs with no deductible

Mandatory generic substitution: Your pharmacist will dispense a generic version of a drug if one is available. If your doctor recommends you take the brand name, you and your doctor will need to complete the Drug Exception Form found on the Sun Life website. If you’d prefer to receive the brand version, and do not want to complete this form, you will pay the cost difference between brand and generic. Learn more about mandatory generic drugs.

Prior authorization for specialty medications: Prior authorization requires that coverage for certain drug therapies are pre-approved based on medical criteria. If a preferred drug—a drug selected by experts based on its safety, cost and efficacy—does not improve your condition, you and your doctor can submit an authorization form before you get your prescription filled to get approval for a non-preferred drug. Learn more about how prior authorization works.

Preferred Pharmacy Network (PPN): You can now help reduce claim costs for specialty drugs paid for by the plan by shopping at participating pharmacies. You can also take advantage of condition management support services.

Smoking cessation products

80% of the costs for products that have a Drug Identification Number (DIN) or a Natural Product Number (NPN), up to a lifetime maximum of $500. Must be prescribed by a doctor or dentist and obtained from a pharmacist.
