Brand penalties

A brand penalty applies if you reject a generic alternative without a clinical reason. When a brand penalty applies, you pay the generic copay plus the difference between the cost of the generic drug and cost of the brand-name drug.

The brand penalty may be waived if you meet certain criteria. Have your doctor submit the Brand Penalty Exception Request form.
