Prescription Management Program

Certain medications may be exlcuded from coverage under the Health Plan. Just because a medication is excluded under the Health Plan, it does not mean it cannot be filled. It just means that the Health Plan will not provide any assistance in meeting the cost of the medication.
The document link below provides a listing of the Express Scripts (ESI) National Preferred Formulary Exclusions and the Preferred Alternatives by drug class. The Health Plan may exclude additional medications not listed in the linked document, and reserves the right to adjust excluded medications from time to time as required. Contact the Health Plan Administration Office to verify whether a covered medication is subject to Exclusion.
