Preferred Drug List

Our Preferred Drug List applies to most of our benefit plans. Not sure if this drug list applies to your benefit plan? Log into My Health Toolkit® for personal information about your prescription drug coverage.

A group of doctors and pharmacists chooses the drugs for our Preferred Drug List based on their effectiveness, safety and value. If you are using a drug that is not on our Preferred Drug List, we encourage you to talk to your doctor about generic and preferred brand-name drugs. Since there may be more than one drug that treats your health condition, you and your doctor may decide you should change to a generic or preferred brand-name drug. You can use the drug lookup tool to search for a specific drug. (This link leads to a third party website. Caremark, an independent company, is solely responsible for the contents and privacy policy on its site.)

If you want to save the most on your prescription drug costs, we encourage you to consider generic drugs. The FDA requires generics to have the same quality, strength, purity and stability as their brand-name counterparts. There are generics available to treat many conditions and many people find them to be a good choice. In fact, two out of every three prescriptions are now filled with generics. Ask your doctor if generics are right for you.


Our Preferred Drug List is subject to change at any time, but we generally make updates on a quarterly basis. When a new generic becomes available, we add it to our Preferred Drug List right away. In most cases, we also remove its brand-name counterpart. You can continue to use the brand-name drug, but you may pay more for it. Or, with your doctor's approval, you can switch to the generic and start saving right away.
