2019 Summary of Coverage

The health and well-being of employees is a priority in Prince George’s County Government. All of the benefits available to you reflect the County’s commitment to providing high-quality, affordable medical plans and represent a significant component of your total rewards. Access to prescription drugs is a vital part of our medical coverage. The County’s prescription drug benefit through Express Scripts has a mandatory home delivery program for all maintenance medications.

Maintenance medications are prescription drugs that you need to take regularly. Drugs that treat ongoing conditions or needs like asthma, diabetes, birth control, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and arthritis are usually considered maintenance medications. A maintenance medication can also be a drug that you take for three to six months and then discontinue. For example, an allergy medication that you take throughout the spring and summer could be considered a maintenance medication.
