Formulary Information
A comprehensive formulary is a list of covered drugs selected by this plan. The formulary may change during the year. We may periodically add, remove, or make changes to coverage limitations on certain drugs or change how much you pay for a drug. If we make any formulary changes that limit our members' ability to fill their prescriptions, we will notify the affected members before the change is made. Read about formulary information pdf icon and any restrictions to the formulary.

Upcoming Formulary Changes
We will notify you of a formulary change at least 60 days before the date that the change becomes effective. However, if the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) deems a drug on our formulary to be unsafe, or if the drug's manufacturer removes the drug from the market, we will immediately remove the drug from the formulary.
