How do I use the Prescription Drug Formulary Search?
Search by Therapeutic Class/Medical ConditionThe drugs in this formulary are grouped into categories depending on the type of medical conditions that they are used to treat. For example, drugs used to treat a heart condition are listed under the category, “Cardiovascular”.
Search by Prescription Drug NameYou may enter the name of your drug in the text field under ‘Brand & Generic Name Search’ and click the ‘Search’ button to view your drug’s coverage information and restrictions.
Search by Alphabetical ListingIf you are not sure what category to look under, you should search for your drug in the alphabetical index. Both brand name drugs and generic drugs are listed in the Index under the first letter of the prescription drug name. Click on the applicable letter and then search for/click on your drug name.
