The Preferred Drug List is subject to your benefit plan and changes frequently as new generic and brand-name drugs become available.

How the Drug Pricing Works:

We classify drugs into several main categories - Generic (some plans divide Generics into Preferred Generics and Non-Preferred Generics), Preferred Brand and Non-Preferred Brand drugs and Self-Administered Injectables/Specialty drugs. What you pay for your medication depends on the category it's in:

  • Generic drugs work the same as brand-name drugs, but cost much less. So you'll pay less to use them.
  • Preferred Brand drugs are as effective as non-preferred and are chosen for their effectiveness and affordability but are not available as generic. You will pay more than for generics, but less than for non-preferred brand drugs.
  • Non-preferred Brand drugs are often available as a less-expensive generic and are more expensive. You will pay the most for non-preferred brand drugs.
  • Self-Administered Injectables/Specialty drugs (excluding insulin) are the highest priced drugs are usually have coinsurance. These drugs are used to treat a serious or chronic condition.

When you can, ask your provider to prescribe a generic drug, or choose the generic version of the prescribed brand name drug if one is available.
