NOTICE: Inclusion of a drug in a drug formulary does not

prescribe the drug for a particular medical condition or mental illness.
Some drugs have special restrictions for coverage. This can

physician authorizations. Lists of these restrictions are below.

Our prescription step therapy program promotes the use of generic drugs as the first step in treating your
condition. How does the program work?
When you get a new prescription in certain drug classes, you must try a
generic option or similar alternative medication.
If the generic option is not right for you, your physician may
request an authorization for a brand-name drug.
If you do not follow the program, the brand-name drug will not
be covered under your benefits.
For more information on this program, view our Lead
with Generics brochure.
