The Governor of Nebraska has issued a State of Emergency due to flooding. All counties in Nebraska are impacted.
Express Scripts (the Plan’s Pharmacy Benefit Manager) has activated an Emergency Access to Benefits/Refill Too Soon override that allows pharmacies, at the point of sale (POS), to override certain benefit coverage/edits such as an early refill during a government-defined emergency. In addition, if your home delivery of medications is affected by the emergency, you may provide a temporary alternate address (either online at www.express-scripts.com or by calling 1-800-818-6717) or request a local fill as needed.
The Emergency Access to Benefits/Refill Too Soon override process will be implemented with an effective date of March 15, 2019 and expiration date of April 14, 2019
