Our Preferred Drug List applies to most of our benefit plans. Members who are not sure if this drug list applies to their benefit plans can log into My Health Toolkit® for personal information about their prescription drug coverage.
A group of doctors and pharmacists chooses the drugs for our Preferred Drug List based on their effectiveness, safety and value. We encourage members to talk to their doctors about generic and preferred brand-name drugs that may be good choices for them. Generic and preferred brand-name drugs may work just as well, and they may also save them money. Use the drug lookup tool to search for a specific drug.
Our Preferred Drug List is subject to change at any time without notice, 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. Members can continue to use the brand-name drug, but they may pay more for it. Or, with their doctor's approval, they can switch to the generic and start saving right away.
Keeping up with preferred drug lists for all your patients can be challenging. With electronic prescribing, it’s easier than ever to access patient eligibility, complete medication histories and preferred drug list information for all your patients at the point of care. The Medicare Improvement for Patients and Providers Act required ePrescriptions for Medicare patients beginning in 2012. And bonus incentives from Medicare began in 2009, so now is a great time to start!
