Discover the benefits and the savings of medical and pharmacy together.

Medical and pharmacy together. By combining the two, union members not only save money, they get better overall care. Our pharmacy solution is powered by IngenioRx — our new PBM built to our own standards. It helps us maximize your members’ overall health while, working closely with individuals and care providers.

Dedicated teams focus on you. For both member services and specialty pharmacy, we’re dedicated and available 24/7. Plus, our fully digital experience gives members access to their pharmacy and medical benefits. They can compare costs, get refills, schedule alerts and so much more. We don’t just meet union standards, we meet New Yorkers’ standards.
