We make it easy for you to get the medicine you need to feel better. You may have a copay when you see your medicine on the Statewide Preferred Drug List (PDL) or the Supplemental Formulary. These are lists of covered medications. If you don’t see your medicine on the list, your doctor will help you find one that’s similar. If your medicine isn’t on the list, your provider can ask us for an exception. And you can fill your prescription at any pharmacy in our network.
