Prescription price check tool 

It's easier than ever for OEBB members to check the price of prescription medications and find alternatives that save money.

The prescription price check tool allows you to get information quickly and easily. Simply enter the medication name and choose from the list of matching drugs to find the cost and quantity. You can also see options for ordering through the mail pharmacy or a retail pharmacy.

The prescription price check tool can help you save money by showing you when a lower-cost, generic option is available. At a simple glance, you can see how much is covered by your plan and what the remaining cost will be. You can also get an estimated price from a specific pharmacy.

This tool can be accessed by logging in to myODS, selecting the Pharmacy tab, and clicking on "Prescription price check" or by visiting the pharmacy services webpage for OEBB members.   



What's your Health Age?  

A Health Risk Assessment (HRA) is the first step to your journey of improved health and well-being. The HRA is an online assessment that asks a series of questions about your everyday health habits and behaviors on a variety of topics including: physical activity, food selection, health attitude, etc. You will receive valuable feedback about your health and your risk factors immediately following the assessment. By answering questions about your habits you'll come away with a clear picture of what you're doing well and what areas you could improve upon.

Employers will not have access to personal information as individual results will be collected by a third-party vendor, WorldDoc 24/7.This benefit is only available for those who have ODS medical insurance. Completing the HRA will not affect your healthcare cost-share or premiums.

Click on the HRA FAQ for instructions on how to complete the HRA or log in to myODS at www.odscompanies.com/oebb and find the HRA under WorldDoc 24/7.  

Do you have a dependent living out of state?  


Out-of-area medical care

If you have a dependent who lives outside of the ODS Plus Network service area, you will need to notify ODS Customer Service prior to their seeking medical services. Your dependent will then be placed in an "out-of-area" status beginning the first day of the month following notification to ODS.

With this out-of-area status, ODS will extend plan benefits for treatment of an illness or injury, preventive healthcare and maternity services, as if the care were rendered by an in-network physician or provider. Your out-of-area dependents will need to access care within a 30-mile radius of their residence in order for the in-network benefit to apply. The fees charged by out-of-area physicians and providers of care will be reimbursed at the maximum plan allowance for those services.

Emergency care

All OEBB members are covered at the in-network benefit level for emergency services worldwide. If you believe you have a medical emergency you should call 9-1-1 or seek care from the nearest appropriate urgent care or emergency room.   


Dental care

As an OEBB member, you have access to the Delta Dental Premier network for dental care. Delta Dental Premier offers the largest network of dentists in the country - encompassing more than 135,700 dentists and more than 231,300 office locations nationwide.

You can search for in-network providers using the find care tool located on our website.
