Is coordination of benefits with a spouse’s plan allowed?
Yes. The initial claim is always directed to the cardholder’s drug plan first and to a spouse’s plan second. Let us know about any other prescription drug coverage you may have when you join the Express Scripts Canada Pharmacy. You should submit claims for dependant children first to the plan of the spouse whose birth date is earliest in the year.
Will I receive a receipt for the outstanding balance to submit to another insurance plan?
If the pharmacy has information on both drug cards, both plans can be billed electronically and payments will be charged in real time. Any outstanding balance from either drug plan will be charged to you as a copayment. You will be provided with a receipt signed by the pharmacist for each prescription dispensed.
