Drug List Selection
Our health plans use a "Preferred Drug List" containing brand-name and generic medicines approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and reviewed and recommended by our Pharmacy and Therapeutics (P&T) Committee. Our P&T Committee is an independent group of practicing doctors, pharmacists and other health care professionals responsible for the research and decisions surrounding our drug lists. This group regularly meets to review new and existing drugs and chooses the medicines for our drug lists for several reasons, including their safety, value and how well they work.
If you are prescribed a drug not listed on the drug list, you may need to pay more for it on your own because it is not covered. To determine if a medication is included on our health plans' drug lists, please read the instructions below for viewing our printable drug lists* online.
