Welcome to JIB Medical P.C.

JIB Medical looks forward to serving your family’s health care needs. All participants in the Pension Hospitalization and Benefit Plan (PHBP) are eligible to use its services, as detailed in the Summary Plan Description for the PHBP.

JIB Medical sees patients who come to the facility for primary care as well as patients who have outside doctors.

Of course, all findings are available to the patient and any other doctor the patient designates and releases information to under HIPAA.

There are no copays for non-acute care medical services performed at JIB Medical.

Frequently Asked Questions

I don’t understand the difference between generic, Plan-preferred brand-name and non-preferred brand-name drugs.

Generic drugs are manufactured after the original manufacturer’s patent expires. These drugs are safe, effective and FDA-approved to meet the same rigorous standards for quality, strength and purity as their brand-name counterparts. They are less expensive because the generic manufacturer does not have the investment costs of the developer of a new drug.

Plan-preferred brand-name drugs are those that do not yet have a generic equivalent available and are preferred based on safety, effectiveness and cost. An independent Express Scripts committee of physicians and pharmacists determines which brand-name drugs are preferred. They are included on a drug list know as a formulary.

Non-preferred brand-name drugs are those that do not yet have a generic equivalent, but for reasons of effectiveness or cost, are not on your Plan’s formulary drug list.
