Changes To Prescription Benefits For Medicare-Eligible Participants



The Fresno Unified School District’s Medicare Part D EGWP plan, ElixirRx Plus, was officially terminated on July 1, 2023. Most Medicare-eligible members were enrolled in the Aetna Medicare Advantage PPO plan. However, members not enrolled in the Aetna Medicare Advantage PPO plan were moved to a different ElixirRx plan.

If you were previously enrolled in ElixirRx Plus, but were not enrolled in the Aetna Medicare Advantage PPO, you now need to present your PPO Plan A or PPO Plan B medical/prescription combo card at the pharmacy, rather than the ElixirRx Plus card.

I agree to represent my school/department as the Wellness Champion for this school year.
