Aetna Better Health also covers certain over-the-counter drugs, if they are on our list. Some are covered, under certain rules. If the rules for that drug are met, Aetna Better Health will cover the drug. Like other drugs, over-the-counter drugs must have a prescription from a provider for them to be covered.

You can look to see if your over-the-counter medicines are on the formulary list.

Ask the representative to look up your medicines to see if they are on the list.

Your medicine bottle label says how many refills you can have. If your provider or dentist has not ordered refills and you think you may need a refill, you must call him or her at least five days before your medicine runs out. When you call, ask your provider or dentist about getting a refill. They may want to see you before giving you a refill.

Aetna Better Health of New Jersey wants you to be as healthy as possible. You want to know about the different medicines you take. To help you, we have included a list of questions you should always ask your provider when he or she gives you a prescription.

  • Why am I taking this medicine? What is it supposed to do for me?
  • How should the medicine be taken? When? For how many days?
  • Are there any side effects or possible allergic reactions to this medicine?
  • What should I do if I have a side effect or allergic reaction?
  • What will happen if I don't take this medicine?

Carefully read the drug information given with your medicine. It will tell you what you should and shouldn’t do while taking the medicine. If you still have questions after you get your medicine, ask to speak with the pharmacist or call your provider.
