Alcatel-Lucent: Medco's Low-Cost Generic Drug Program

June 19, 2009

To:  All Alcatel-Lucent Active and Represented Retirees

It has come to my attention that not everyone is aware of Medco's Low Cost Generic Drug Program.  Back in March of this year, Alcatel-Lucent, Medco and the Joint Healthcare Cost Containment Committee (JHCC) were pleased to announce the availability of over 400 generic drugs for $10 or less for a 90-day supply through Medco's Mail Order Pharmacy.

Attached is a list of over 400 generic drugs that cover such therapeutic categories as Arthritis/Pain, Asthma/Respiratory, Blood Pressure/Heart Health, Cholesterol, Diabetes, Mental Health and many more.

This is a great way to save money, ensure that your prescription cost is competitive, and be able to have all of your prescription information in one location to help monitor drug interactions.  To find out if a 90-day supply of your generic medication is available for $10 or less, you can visit Medco online at or call the toll-free number on the back of your prescription drug ID card. 

In Unity,
