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.

Keep in mind 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 for details.
