Prescription Program

If you are enrolled in the UVA Health Plan (Choice, Value, or Basic Health), you also receive prescription drug coverage, managed by OptumRx. We are no longer using AetnaRx for prescription coverage.

UVA Pharmacy

You have the option to use the UVA Pharmacy; medication prices here are often less expensive for employees than at other pharmacies.

All specialty medications must be filled by UVA’s Specialty Pharmacy. If you had Basic Health and were covered by AentaRx in 2017, you may have medications that were not designated as specialty drugs on your past plan that are considered specialty drugs by OptumRx.
