Important Note: With the transition from CVS Caremark to Express Scripts, some members may find that their current medications have changed copayment tiers or may be excluded from coverage if a less expense, equivalent medication is available. To see if your current medications will be considered a Preferred Brand-Name prescription with Express Scripts, please view the Preferred Drug List below. If you find that your current medication is not considered a Preferred Drug, you are strongly encouraged to visit with your physician to see if an alternative, Preferred Drug is appropriate for you to try.

Preferred Drug List
A Preferred Drug List helps keep healthcare costs down for everybody. It’s a list of medicines that have been reviewed and approved for safety, effectiveness and cost by a panel of doctors and pharmacists. This list is continually reviewed and updated as new medicines become available.
Note that certain brand-name medicines are excluded from the Preferred Drug List and therefore not covered due to equally effective and safe alternatives being available. If you’re currently taking a medicine that is not included on the Preferred Drug List, it is highly recommended that you visit with your physician to see if a Preferred Drug is appropriate for you to try. If your physician determines that it is necessary for you to continue to take a Non-Preferred and/or Excluded Drug, a prior-authorization for medical necessity may be submitted by your physician to Express Scripts.
