NYCDCC Welfare Fund Now Fully Covers Preventive Breast Cancer Medications

NYCDCC Welfare Fund Now Fully Covers Preventive Breast Cancer Medications

October 1, 2014

As of October 1, 2014, the NYCDCC Welfare Fund is pleased to inform you that all preventive breast cancer medications have a $0 copay, if you are an eligible female participant or dependent who is age 35 or older. According to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the NYCDCC Welfare Fund was required to fully cover these medications by July of 2015, but the Board of Trustees voted to approve the full coverage earlier to the benefit of female participants and eligible dependents. The following preventive breast cancer medications now have a $0 copay:

  • Tamoxifen (generic)
  • Raloxifene (generic)
  • Soltamox (Tamoxifen liquid) (brand)

There is no action required on your part to receive these medications at $0 copay. If you have any questions regarding this change, please call Express Scripts at (800) 939-2091 or visit their website at www.express-scripts.com.
