Prescription Drugs

Prescription drug benefits are offered through all three Baker Hughes Medical plans.

They’re also expensive, which is why Baker Hughes provides Prescription Drug coverage automatically with your medical coverage.

Because prescription drugs today account for the largest share of your Medical plan premium, it’s smart to ask your doctor to prescribe generic equivalents whenever possible. Generics work the same as (or similar to) the more expensive brand-name drugs, but cost BHGE—and you—much less. If a generic isn’t available, ask your doctor to prescribe a brand name drug that’s listed on the CVS/caremark formulary.

You will receive a CVS/caremark Prescription Drug ID card the first time you enroll in a Baker Hughes Medical plan. To view your prescription drug coverage, click here. To look up prescription drug costs and find a pharmacy, click here.

Prescription Drug Costs

What you pay when you need a prescription depends on the Medical plan you enroll in. Go to the CVS/caremark website to review the list of covered medications and preventive drugs (called the "formulary") and to find prescription drug costs. You can also review it here.

If you enroll in the Premium HSA or Basic HSA plan, you will bypass the deductible for certain preventive medications. Under all three plans, select preventive drugs are covered at no cost. You can find a list of clinically effective and cost-effective medications, including covered medications and preventive drugs, on the CVS/caremark website.

  • Make sure your doctor prescribes generic or formulary brand drugs whenever possible
  • Use home delivery for maintenance medications
