Pharmacy Tourism Program

 

Please note this program is currently suspended due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Savings on Prescription Medications Filled Abroad

To help you save money on your prescriptions, PEHP offers members who are not enrolled in Medicare the option to fill select medications (from list below) at a designated pharmacy tourism location in Canada or Mexico. If you’re enrolled in the Traditional Plan, the medications are covered by your PEHP pharmacy benefit at no extra cost. If you’re enrolled in a STAR HSA Plan, the cost is covered by your PEHP pharmacy benefit once you meet your deductible. The PEHP Pharmacy Tourism Program allows you to fill 90-day supply of medications you are currently taking.

If you want to fill a prescription (from list below) from a designated pharmacy in Canada or Mexico, PEHP will coordinate travel and cover the following costs associated with the program:

  • Roundtrip airfare from Salt Lake City International Airport to either San Diego or Vancouver International Airport
  • If needed, transportation to and from clinic location and overnight hotel stay

You are responsible for food expenses and a valid passport. Please visit travel.state.gov for travel requirements to Canada and Mexico.
