Dear TCSIG Member,
It is time to get ready for your new pharmacy benefits manager
Pharmacy is an important part of your health benefits. Starting July 1, 2022, Ingenio Rx will manage your prescription drug coverage. Please watch the mail at the end of June for your new ID card. You will need to present this card when you use your pharmacy benefits.
What this means for you
If you are currently getting a prescription from a retail pharmacy, you may be able to continue receiving your refills from that pharmacy using your new ID card.
We are here to help
If you have questions about this change or your plan, please call (530) 822-5299.


Sincerely,
TCSIG Admin
