Highlight Clips

My spouse and I both have AlaskaCare plans and have coordinated benefits. How will this be managed, now that we will be enrolled in the EGWP?
I have a prescription through Aetna’s mail order program, this prescription is current and has remaining refills. Do I need to enroll in a new program to continue receiving this prescription?
I was informed by OptumRx that I have the option to opt out of the enhanced EGWP, but could not provide me the specific cost of that alternative plan. What is the cost of that plan?
