Is Using ConnectDME Mandatory

No - However, to avoid out-of-pocket costs, members should use ConnectDME to fill medical equipment and supply prescriptions. The Health Plan will continue to pay towards prescriptions for medical equipment or supplies, which do not go through ConnectDME, but these will result in potentially high member out-of-pocket costs.
