Drug Lists: The prescription drugs your plan covers
|Which drug list applies to your plan? If you have Individual & Family or Small Group coverage, you will find your plan’s drug list or “formulary” printed on your member ID card. Or, if you have coverage through your work, you can ask your employer directly. You can also call the Customer Support number printed on your ID card.|

Specialty drug list
This list includes specialty drugs that must be filled through a participating specialty pharmacy in order for coverage to be provided. However, this applies only if you have a specialty pharmacy network included in your benefit.
Specialty Pharmacy network lists
If you’re taking a medicine that’s on our Exclusive Specialty drug list, you may need to get your prescription filled at a specialty pharmacy in order for your drug to be covered under your pharmacy benefit. If you use a pharmacy that is not in the network, your medicine may not be covered and you may have to pay the full cost.

How we choose the drugs on these lists
An independent group of practicing doctors, pharmacists and other health-care professionals meet often to look at new and existing drugs. They choose drugs for these lists based on a number of factors including how well they work, value to patients and safety. All drugs on these lists are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). View the latest updates from this committee.

Getting another drug added to the list
If you are prescribed a drug that is not listed on your plan’s drug list, you may need to pay more for it because it is not covered. You or your doctor can also fill out an Online Formulary Addition Request form to ask for an exception.
