We cover prescription medications listed on our formulary (drug list) at no extra cost to members. If your patient needs medication, you’ll want to check the list for covered medications, step therapy requirements, quantity limits and updates. You can download the list or check it online.
If a medication isn’t listed on the formulary (drug list), you can:
- Prescribe a similar one that is on the list
- Get prior authorization (PA) for coverage
Ask members to check with you for refills. And let them know you may need to see them first.
