Students Benefits Summary

Medical

Visiting scientists and visiting predoctoral students receive bundled benefits packages that include medical and vision coverage.

The MontePrime EPO plan requires that certain in-network providers be used. Any cost share will be higher when Empire BlueCard PPO facilities and providers outside Montefiore and the Montefiore Integrated Provider Association network are used.

Prescription Drug Benefits

The prescription drug benefits under the MontePrime EPO plan are available through the Montefiore Outpatient Pharmacy only.

Under the MonteCare PPO plan, prescription drug benefits are administered by Express Scripts, Inc. (ESI). Under the MonteCare PPO plan, you have the option of using retail pharmacies within the ESI network, the ESI home delivery pharmacy service or the Montefiore Outpatient Pharmacy for your prescription drug needs. Prescriptions filled at the Montefiore Outpatient Pharmacy will be delivered to the ScriptCenter on Einstein’s campus daily.
