This move could lower costs for those who struggle with high deductibles and other out-of-pocket expenses. This plan will take effect next year and will be required for all new employer clients.

The company also stated that the existing voluntary program, which began this year, has already lowered drug costs for consumers by an average of $130 per eligible prescription.
