Starting January 1, 2020, some UPMC for Life plans will include a quarterly allowance that can be used to buy covered wellness items. Members will be sent a mail-order catalog with hundreds of covered health and wellness items to choose from, including:
- Cough, cold and flu medications.
- Pain relievers.
- Allergy and sinus medications.
- First aid materials.
- Foot treatments.
- Sun protection.
- Toothbrushes and toothpaste.
- Weight control products, and more.
Not all plans offer an over-the-counter quarterly allowance. Compare UPMC for Life plans.
This allowance does not roll over from quarter to quarter. It must be used in full each quarter or the remaining amount will be lost.
