*A generic drug will always be dispensed if one is available. If you purchase a brand-name drugwhen a generic alternative is available, you will pay the generic co-payment plus the difference incost between the brand and the generic, even if your doctor writes “dispense as written” (DAW) onthe prescription.

pay the applicable cost share and receive up to a 30-day supply of the prescribed drug. For
