Prescription Drug Network

2020 and 2021 Plan Year Information

NEW IN 2021

Starting January 1, 2021, Express Scripts will be managing Morgan Stanley’s prescription drug plan.

Express Scripts is the largest independent manager of pharmacy benefits in the United States and one of the country’s largest pharmacies, serving more than 85 million people. With Express Scripts, you have flexibility and choice in how you receive your medications — you can pick them up at your neighborhood pharmacy, have them delivered or, depending on where you live, take advantage of a new same-day delivery service from Capsule, for free. Whichever option you choose, the Firm is partnering with Express Scripts to ensure you and your family get affordable medication, quickly and conveniently.

All of the current prescription drug benefit plan features are staying the same in 2021, including copays and deductibles (if enrolled in Option C).
