ConnectiCare drug formulary
The ConnectiCare Medicare Advantage drug formulary is a compilation of brand and generic pharmaceuticals. Medications that are selected to be added to the formulary are reviewed by the Pharmacy and Therapeutics (P&T) Committee. Members of the P&T Committee include participating physicians of various in-network specialties, pharmacists and medical directors. This committee is responsible for identifying the pharmaceuticals that will provide optimal results for ConnectiCare members while controlling the cost of drug therapy. The committee meets regularly to keep the drug formularies current.
Some covered drugs may have additional requirements or limits on coverage. These requirements may include:
In some cases, we require doctors to first try certain drugs to treat a medical condition before we will cover another drug. For example, if Drug A and Drug B both treat your patient’s medical condition, we may not cover Drug B unless your patient tries Drug A first. If Drug A does not work for your patient, we will then cover Drug B. This is called step therapy. Here is a list of drugs that fall under this requirement.
Some covered drugs have additional requirements or limits on coverage. We must approve certain drugs before doctors can prescribe them to you. This is called a prior authorization. It helps us see that drugs are used appropriately and helps guarantee the safety and affordability of medications. Here is a list of drugs that require prior authorization.
