What is the formulary?

The formulary is a list of preferred drugs. These drugs have been carefully selected by our physicians and pharmacists on the basis of safety, effectiveness, quality, and, where possible, cost. Our formulary contains a comprehensive list of drugs, which should meet the needs of most patients. We believe the formulary will enable us to provide high-quality products, while keeping costs down.

If you have prescription drug coverage, we cover only those drugs on our formulary, unless your physician determines that a non-formulary drug is medically necessary rather than the formulary alternative, and that drug is not otherwise excluded from your benefits plan.
