Over-the-Counter Card (OTC Card)

The OTC Card is a value-added benefit for members in the Choice Plus Plan. On the 1st of every month, $10 is loaded onto the card. With this allowance, you may purchase eligible OTC and health-related items (i.e. aspirin, cold & flu relief medications, and adhesive bandages) at any participating pharmacy.

Funds do not carry over to the next month. If you don’t use the whole amount, any remaining balance gets cleared before the next month’s funds are added. The cards are to be re-used each month. You are not mailed a new one each month. Do not throw away your card.
