  • How much will my prescription cost?
      •  
      • Prescription cost will vary depending on your insurance.
      • Because drug pricing can change on a daily basis, a final determination of your co-pay cost cannot be made until your claim is processed. You may also call the Member Services phone number on your prescription insurance card to get the most current information.
      • If you are unable to afford the out-of-pocket cost for your prescription, Ahma will work to identify co-pay card assistance, patient assistant programs, or other support and/or charitable organizations. Visit our website to learn about Patient Assistance.
      • The cost may also vary depending on the quantity of medication. Your prescription will be filled for the amount of medication that the physician prescribes. Please be sure to advise your physician to prescribe for the maximum amount/days supply allowable by your insurance coverage (days allowed may vary by plan).
      • If you have Medicare Part D drug coverage, the cost of your prescription will change significantly as you meet your deductible and initial co-pay, progress through the “donut hole” and reach total out-of-pocket expense. Our Care First Coordinators can assist you in determining and understanding your options. Visit our website to learn more about these services.
