Using the Preferred Drug List

The Network Health Preferred Drug List contains the most commonly prescribed medications with information about copayment tiers and restrictions, if any.

Tips for Using the Preferred Drug List

  1. Use the bookmark panel to find the chapter in which the prescription medication is located. For example, drugs used to treat heart conditions are listed in the “Cardiovascular Medications” category. If you know the medication’s category, click the category name listed in the bookmark panel and then scroll through the category list to locate the medication.
  2. If you don’t know the medication’s category, the index link at the bottom of the bookmark list provides an alphabetical list of all medications in the document. Scroll through the index to find the page number for the medication and then go to that page to locate the medication.
  3. The columns on each page list the drug name, any restrictions that apply and the tier number in which the medication is classified.
  4. Abbreviations are explained on the bottom of each page. The tier numbers relate to the copayment amounts, the amount the plan member will pay for the medication according to the member's pharmacy benefit schedule.

Please refer to the "Forward" section of the Preferred Drug List for more information about how to use the list. If you have additional questions, please contact CVS Caremark Customer Care toll-free at 855-282-8476.
