As a 30-year University of Tennessee employee, Susan Murphy knows a lot about employee benefits.
Murphy, who currently works for the UT Space Institute, has always felt UT provided great insurance benefits to employees. After discovering her benefits for prescribed medications had been changed, Murphy began purchasing the generic forms of the medications.
The switch from name brand medications to the generic forms has cut Murphy’s prescription costs in half. Not only does Murphy enjoy paying less, but she also enjoys having more medication options.
“Prescriptions can be so expensive, so knowing that as an employee I can buy the generic forms and save money is really nice, ” Murphy said. “This benefit is a great thing and has saved me a great deal of money.”Tags: Employee Benefits
