  • Clicking on therapeutic class of the drug

If the drug you’re looking for isn’t on the formulary

We have a list of drugs we’ll pay for. This is called a formulary. We won’t pay for drugs that aren’t on the formulary unless you get an OK from us first. This is called an exception.

If you and your provider think you need a drug that’s not on the formulary, you can ask for an exception by:
