Wellness Support for WTC Responders Available at Our Stony Brook Center of Excellence

Pharmacy Services:
On June 1, 2022, Express Scripts will
replace Optum as the World Trade Center (WTC) Health Program
Pharmacy Benefits Manager (PBM)
 
There is no action needed by you at this time. Please continue to fill your WTC-related medications through OptumRx or local retail pharmacy as you have been until you receive more information from Express Scripts.
 
In mid-May, Express Scripts will be mailing out welcome packets, which will include a new WTC Health Program Prescription ID Card. Hang onto the new ID card as you will need it to fill WTC-related prescriptions at your local pharmacy on and after June 1, 2022.
 
Any current OptumRx Home Delivery prescriptions will be transferred automatically to Express Scripts. After the transfer, you will order refills through Express Scripts Home Delivery
 
For the most updated information about this transition please visit cdc.gov/wtc/pbmtransition.html
 
For any questions or concerns, please call us directly at the Stony Brook WTC Health and Wellness Clinic
at 631-855-1200 and ask to speak with someone in the pharmacy department.
