Additional information on this program, a list of 90-day participating pharmacies, and information on Medco-by-Mail may be obtained at http://ben.omb.delaware.gov/script/index.shtml. (If the strength of a current prescription is changed, it is considered a NEW prescription.)


Generic Plus Choice Program
If you purchase a brand name medication when a generic is available, you will pay the difference in price between the generic and brand drug, in addition to the generic co-pay (see example below). This provision applies regardless of whether your prescription is written for a brand name drug and designated "dispense as written".
