COVID-19 and USG Benefits Update: Pharmacy/Prescription Medications

To ensure access to prescription medications, early refill limits will be waived for 30-day maintenance prescriptions at in-network pharmacies. Additionally, CVS pharmacies are waiving charges for home delivery of all prescription medications. If you do not use a CVS pharmacy, please check with your local pharmacy for information about waived home delivery charges.

If you take a maintenance medication, we encourage you to use the 90-day supply option. This will reduce the number of trips to the pharmacy and will lower your out of pocket cost. As part of the prescription drug program, you also have the option of home delivery from CVS Caremark Mail Service pharmacy with no delivery cost.

COVID-19 Virtual Screenings

The free COVID-19 virtual screenings for USG employees through Augusta University Health System (AUHS) are now available to all USG retirees. All visits are secure and confidential. Visit, www.augustahealth.org/COVID19, then: 1. CHOOSE A MEDICAL PROVIDER: See list of available providers, their experience and ratings. Pick any provider you'd like. 2. START YOUR VIDEO VISIT: Providers will review your medical history and symptoms, then provide pre-screening results. If your results are positive, further instruction will be provided.

Special Wellness Center Rate

Your Georgia College Retiree Association is excited to share with you that we have been able to secure the ability for Georgia College retirees to pay the same monthly rate for the use of the Wellness and Recreation Center (W.R.C.) on West Campus as do employees. Prior to this, G.C. retirees have had to pay the same monthly rate as the community which is $50. Please click on the Member Benefits link to learn how!
