Generic Drugs
Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), generic drugs are as safe and effective as the equivalent brand-name drug, and offer you a way to take control of your health care costs. In certain instances, you have a choice between brand-name and generic drugs. To take advantage of your plan's lower generic copay instead of the higher brand-name copay, ask your physician to prescribe a generic drug or write a prescription that allows for substitution of a generic drug whenever possible.


In New Jersey, if a physician indicates "substitution permissible" or gives no indication at all on the prescription, the pharmacist must substitute a generic drug in place of a brand-name drug. However, you or your physician has the option to advise the pharmacist that a substitution is not permissible if you prefer the brand-name drug.

You may also pay a lower price for certain generic drugs at some retail pharmacies without using your prescription card at the pharmacy window. As your pharmacist or click on the links below to find out more:

If you are eligible for Medicare and are enrolled in the District prescription plan, you are enrolled in a 'creditable coverage' plan. This means you will not be penalized when you decide to enroll in a Medicare Part D plan in the future because your District plan is expected to cover your prescription drugs on the same level as a standard Medicare plan. You are provided with a Notice of Creditable Coverage (below) annually; be sure to keep these notices on file. Visit www.medicare.gov for more information.
