REMINDER: MPI Changes to Pharmacy Benefits Effective January 1st, 2021 

With the New Year approaching, we want to remind Local 399 Members covered under MPIHP of the upcoming changes to your Pharmacy Benefit. After significant research, careful consideration and a thorough cost / benefit analysis by MPIHP, the Motion Picture Industry Health Plan (“MPIHP”) will partner with CVS Caremark for your pharmacy benefits effective JANUARY 1, 2021. CVS Caremark will replace Express Scripts for MPIHP’s Active Participants and non-Medicare eligible Retirees.

MPIPHP has put together an extensive FAQ to help participants understand the upcoming changes and answer as many anticipated questions as possible. This FAQ sheet was mailed to all MPI participants, however you can review a digital version here as well.

We want to continue to encourage our Members to make MPI your first call with ANY questions or concerns about your health and benefit plans.

If there is anything we can do to assist you in understanding your MPI benefits, please do not hesitate to reach out as Kenny Farnell, Joshua Staheli and I sit on the Board of Directors of the Plans and have been extensively involved in navigating the COVID-19 pandemic as it pertains to our Member’s health and welfare benefits.

Wishing you and your family a safe and happy start to the New Year!
