Dispensing Fees and Compound Drugs

Dispensing fees are charged by the pharmacy to prepare your medication and can vary between pharmacies. Maximums are a flat rate and are included in the total cost of the prescription. You are responsible to cover any difference in the fee charged by the pharmacy and what ASEBP has set for the maximum.

  • $9 for drugs and prepackaged compounds
  • $13.50 for compounds

Compounds are a mixture of one or more drug ingredients prepared by the pharmacist when you pick up your prescription. Prepackaged compounds come to the pharmacy from another compounding pharmacy already assembled. It’s important to note that all drug ingredients in the compound must be eligible under the plan for the drug to be eligible for coverage. The compound cannot duplicate a commercially available prepackage medication.
