RX4: this places drugs in 1 of 4 levels. The rate of a drug’s level determines the amount that would be paid on that drug. Hence, the costs of drugs in level 2 are more expensive than the drugs in level 1.
RX4 + Deductible: the drugs in level 1 are not subject to deductible and possess the least co-payment. One has to pay a yearly deductible for the drugs in level 2, 3 and 4.
