You need to read the fine print in your policy, THEY ARE ALL 

Mine allows a 30 day supply from a pharmacy with a schedule of 
co-pays for listed generics, listed name brands, and other: of $10, 
$25, $55.  From the mail order pharmacy, I get a 90 day supply for 
the same price more or less.  Humalog, of course, is other; but I get 
8 bottles at a time for $55.
