A. These are drugs that are developed by a company who holds the rights to sell them. When the rights expire, other drug companies can make their own version of the drugs (see generic drugs below). You may be more familiar with brand-name drugs through advertising or because you know people who take them. Q. What is a generic drug? A. Generics are simply copies of brand-name drugs. Brand-name and generic drugs have the same active ingredients, strength and dose. And the FDA requires that generic drugs meet the same high standards for purity, quality, safety and strength. With generics, you get KEY FOR DRUG LIST
Tier 1 – Lowest copayment – Drugs
Q. What if my doctor or I choose a brand-name drug when a generic version is available? that offer the greatest value compared to others that treat the same A. In most cases, you would be responsible for the copay that’s listed on the tier the drug is on. This copay may include an added charge for the cost difference between the brand- name medication and the generic version. Tier 2 – Medium copayment – Brand-
Q. What are “clinically equivalent” medications? How does this affect my drug coverage? A. When drugs are compared in studies, some drugs have been found to be just as effective as others. These drugs are called “clinically equivalent” so it means they work just as well. Part of the P&T Process is to review the most current studies to see if multiple drugs used to treat a disease or a condition have the same effect on a patient. When this is the case, the Process review team may suggest that we cover only the lower cost drug (so we can help keep the overall cost of care as low as possible). This means your specific drug effects, if they’re more affordable, etc.

Q. What if my medication is not on the drug list? Tier 3 drugs may have generic versions in Tier 1 and may cost more than the A. You may want to first check with your doctor about prescribing a drug that is on the drug list. If your doctor prescribes a drug that’s not on the drug list, you will need to pay the copayment that applies to drugs that are not on the list.
Tier 4 – Many drugs on this tier
are “specialty” drugs used to treat
Q. Can I request that a drug be added to the drug list? A. You or your doctor can put in a request to add a drug to the drug list. You can do this either in writing or on our website. Requests are reviewed by the P&T Process team during the drug list review. Please note that if a drug request is approved, it does not guarantee
coverage. Some drugs, such as those used for cosmetic purposes, may be excluded
from your benefits. Please refer to your insurance Certificate or Evidence of Coverage
to know for sure.

be filled.
QL = QUANTITY LIMITS. Certain prescription drugs have specific quantity limits per prescription or per month.
ST = STEP THERAPY REQUIRED. You may need to use one medication before benefits for the use of another medication can be authorized.

For Kentucky Residents Only:
In selecting medications for the prescription drug formulary, the therapeutic effi cacy and cost effectiveness are addressed for each category. All therapeutic categories are represented on the formulary by at least one medication. When a closed formulary is in effect, only medications that are included on the formulary are a covered service. In certain clinical situations, a member may require use of a non-formulary product. Anthem has criteria that permits a member to obtain a non-formulary medication in a closed formulary plan. If specifi c criteria are met, a member can receive a non-formulary drug for a formulary copay. The criteria preserves the clinical integrity of the drug formulary and provides a process by which deviations from the formulary may be allowed. An appeals process is in place for any medications that do not meet the criteria.
