What if you have a prescription for a drug that isnít on your planís list of covered drugs (formulary)?

What if you have a prescription for a drug that isnít on your planís list of covered drugs (formulary)?

If you have a prescription for a drug that isn't on your plan's formulary, you should ask your doctor if there is another drug you can get that is on your plan's formulary. If your doctor can't get another drug on the formulary that suits your requirements, you will have to ask your plan for an exception. Your doctor has to provide your plan with a written or oral statement indicating that the drug is medically essential to care for your disease/condition and that no other drugs on the formulary would be as effective for you as the non-covered drug, would have unfavorable effects, or both. You or your doctor must ask your plan what specific details it wants in order to process the exception request.
