Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee

PW_B156036
P&T Process  
The Pharmacy and Therapeutics (P&T) process includes the selection of drugs considered to be the top choices based on their safety, effectiveness and value for our Drug List/Formulary.  
The P&T process is led by an independent group of practicing doctors, pharmacists and other health care professionals responsible for the research and decisions surrounding our Drug List/Formulary. This group meets regularly to review new and existing drugs, and to choose the top medications for our Drug List/Formulary. 
The P&T process also helps improve customer health through programs like drug utilization review, promoting medication safety and encouraging compliance.  
 
Outcomes Based Drug List/Formulary 
We offer an Outcomes Based Drug List/Formulary. That means we use a balanced approach to drug list/formulary management, based on a combination of research, clinical guidelines and member experience. The latest developments and submission guidelines from around the world are considered when developing and maintaining the Drug List/Formulary.
