Take note of the 2012 HealthFlex Changes


The Medco Pharmacy coverage has changed for all persons covered by the HealthFlex Plan of the North Georgia Conference.  Also, please note the changes to the United Healthcare and vision (VSP) plans. Please find the 4 changes below. 

1. Our new pharmacy plan from Medco does not have set co-payments for each class of drug. Your co-pay will be based on a percentage of the discounted price depending on which class it is.
