Generic Drugs are Safe and Effective
Many people think that generic drugs don't work as well as their brand name equivalents. In fact, generic medications are closely monitored by the FDA for safety, and work just as well as the brand name products.
Generic drugs provide lower cost alternatives to their brand name counterparts. At MaxCare, we promote and encourage the utilization of generic drugs.
Here’s how we save costs with generics
- Flexibility in plan designs let the plan sponsor promote generic utilization
- Identify therapeutic categories where the use of generic alternatives can be maximized
- Communicate the advantages of generics to members
- Incentivize the members’ use of generics through clinical programs
