Your Primary Medical Group and Triple-S Salud Customer Service Offices also have copy of the list.
MENTAL HEALTH, ALCOHOL AND DRUG ABUSE SERVICES
Plan Vital offers mental health, alcohol and substances abuse services. You do not have to see your PCP first to see a doctor or other provider for mental health, alcohol, or substances abuse services. You can ask for these services whenever you feel like you need them.
Plan Vital wants to make it easy for you to get physical and mental health, alcohol, and substance abuse services in the same place. This is called integrated care.
Your Primary Medical Group is one place you can go to get mental health, alcohol or drug abuse services. Your Primary Medical Group must have a psychologist and/or a social worker available at least from 4 to 16 hours per week during regular business hours.
If you get mental health, alcohol or drug abuse services at another place (like a mental health clinic or a psychiatric hospital), they must have services from a PCP in the office at least part of the time to care for your physical health needs.
Plan Vital covers prescription drugs . If you need medicine, your provider will write you a prescription to take to a participating pharmacy. You can choose any pharmacy that works with Triple-S Salud. You can find a list of participating pharmacies in Triple-S Salud Provider Directory, or you can call us at 1-800-981-1352; TTY / TDD users should call 1-855-295-4040.
Prescription drugs are free for children up to the age of 20 and for pregnant women that are Medicaid or CHIP beneficiaries. Other adults will need to pay for prescription drugs. For more information on copayments for prescription drugs, click here.
Your Formulary of Medications Covered (FMC) ) is the list of medicines Vital covers. This list helps your doctor prescribe medicines for you. Brand-name and generic drugs are on the FMC. A generic version of a drug is the first choice. If a generic version of a drug is available, your doctor must prescribe the generic version.
If you have a chronic condition, your doctor can write a prescription for a 90-day supply of some drugs. This way, you only must pay for the drug once instead of paying three times (1 payment per month). You can access the Plan Vital Covered Drug Formulary at the following electronic address: https://www.asespr.org/beneficiarios/medicamentos/
