To initiate the program and start receiving your eligible medication at no cost, you must participate in a free telehealth visit with a CHRISTUS Health clinician. This interaction is not meant in any way to affect the care you receive from your regular physician. This visit is to assist you in getting these high cost medications free of charge.
To enroll, please call 1.800.214.7351 to speak to a representative who will give you more information about the program and explain how to schedule a telehealth visit.
Any of your other medications will still be covered under your current pharmacy benefit coverage. However, to receive a medication listed above at no cost, you must have a telehealth visit with a program clinician and have the medication dispensed by a participating CHRISTUS pharmacy.
CHRISTUS is excited about this opportunity, which will help our Associates and their families save money and increase their access to medical support. We anticipate that this program will save Associates approximately $870,000 a year and provide a cost savings to our health plan as well. We are proud of this first-of-its kind program at CHRISTUS Health and look forward to seeing all the benefits it brings to our Associates and their loved ones on their health care journeys.
