Benefits Plans - Prescription Drug Plan: Drug Plan Updates and New Drug Releases -
Lac-Hydrin® is a prescription medication that has over-the-counter (OTC) alternatives. Ammonium Lactate 12%, the active ingredient in Lac-Hydrin®, is available in over-the-counter products such as AmLactin® or Geri-Hydrolac®. Over-the-counter medications and any prescription medication that contains the same active ingredient(s) at the same strength as an existing over-the-counter medication are not covered by the University of Michigan Prescription Benefit Plan.
The University of Michigan in its sole discretion may modify, amend, or terminate the benefits provided with respect to any individual receiving benefits, including active employees, retirees, and their dependents. Although the university has elected to provide these benefits this year, no individual has a vested right to any of the benefits provided. Nothing in these materials gives any individual the right to continued benefits beyond the time the university modifies, amends, or terminates the benefit. Anyone seeking or accepting any of the benefits provided will be deemed to have accepted the terms of the benefits programs and the university's right to modify, amend or terminate them.
