Prescription medications

Medications prescribed by your doctor and related to your injury are covered by workers’ comp. Your employer should give you a completed First Prescription Fill letter. This letter allows your pharmacist to give you a 7-day supply of medications before your prescription card arrives in the mail. The form also includes a complete list of participating pharmacies.

Summit uses a prescription drug program especially for injured workers, through Express Scripts. You should receive your prescription card within one week of your receipt of your notice of injury. Present this card to your pharmacist for any prescriptions related to your injury.

For more information about participating pharmacies or for authorization to have a prescription filled, please contact Summit at 1-800-282-7644 (Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. EST). Or, click here to find a pharmacy in your area today.
