For more specific information about costs, you may call the toll-free number on your prescription ID card or contact your benefit provider for this information. You may also call UnityPoint Health Pharmacy at 1-877-2mailrx (262-4579).

Even if a specific copay cost is given, you may often pay less than the listed copay for the medication. By using  a UnityPoint Health Afilliate pharmacy or Catamaran Home Deliver, a network plan participant will pay 2.5 copays for a 3 month supply of medication. Note: The 3 month for 2.5 copay benefit only applies to individuals who have insurance benefits offered by the UnityPoint Health System.
