Over-the-Counter & Grocery

Your health is about more than the doctor’s office. That’s why CHPW Medicare Advantage plans give you spending power where it counts: for your groceries, medicine, and wellness products.

  • 2023 Plan 2 members can spend up to $25 per month on over-the-counter (OTC) health products.
  • 2023 MA Dual Plan (HMO D-SNP) members can spend up to $175 per month on OTC health products and groceries: $125 for OTC purchases and $50 for groceries.

That’s a benefit of $300/year for Plan 2 members and $2,100/year for Dual members.

We partner with to bring you these benefits. You can use your OTC Network® card just like a credit card.
