What is a Formulary (preferred drug list – PDL) ?

0

Formulary drugs are a list of both generic and brand-name prescription medications that have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). A team of physicians and pharmacists, the National Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee, meets regularly to review and update the list. It includes medications for most conditions treated outside the hospital. Your doctor can use the list to select medications for your health care needs, while helping you maximize your prescription drug benefit. Does this Preferred Drug List tell me what is covered for me? No. Please remember that just because a medication is listed here does not mean that your benefit program covers that medication. And you may have different copayments for generic, brand-name, or non-preferred brand-name medications. Always refer to your benefit materials, or call the customer service telephone number on your ID card, to determine what level of coverage you have for prescription drugs.
