GatorCare Notes...

Important Formulary Change to Nexium® Medication
The GatorCare formulary is a preferred drug guide that shows you the tier and copay you will pay for your covered medications. Starting July 28, 2014, prescription brand Nexium® in 20mg and 40mg capsules will move to a non-preferred tier. For more information, click here.

Additional Medical Care Services
In Gainesville, there are several additional services available for times when you need medical attention but not Emergency care. The first step is to call your primary care provider. You can also call the 24-hour nurse advice line at 877-789-2583 and they can point you in the right direction. By using these services instead of the Emergency Room, you will save time and money and get the care you need at a fraction of the cost.
