Find out about generics

Generic medications can be a great, safe and inexpensive alternative to many brand-name drugs. Generic drugs are FDA-approved and typically cost much less than similar brand-name products.

  • The FDA tests generic medications to make sure they have the same active ingredients as brand-name versions and act the same when taken.
  • The FDA also confirms that the generic offers the same dosage, strength and quality as the brand-name drug.

Electronic prescribing

Is your doctor still writing out your prescriptions by hand? Go green and save by finding doctors and pharmacies that are using electronic prescribing (e-prescribing). Follow these easy steps:

  1. Find an in-network doctor through Humana’s Physician Finder.
  2. Then, to see if your doctor e-prescribes and to find an e-prescribing pharmacy near you, visit Surescripts.*

Check out the benefits of electronic prescriptions, and you’ll be glad you did.
