Formulary: A list of covered drugs selected by Martin’s Point Generations Advantage in consultation with a team of health care providers, which represents the prescription therapies believed to be a necessary part of a quality treatment program. Martin’s Point Generations Advantage will generally cover the drugs listed in our formulary as long as the drug is medically necessary, the prescription is filled at a Martin’s Point Generations Advantage network pharmacy, and other plan rules are followed.

Wellness Wallet: Fitness/wellness reimbursement benefit offered with all Generations Advantage plans. See each plan’s benefit details for covered services and equipment.
