Understanding Coverage and Cost‐Sharing
Formulary
The Formulary, also known as your Preferred Drug List, is a list of prescription drugs that are covered under
your plan. The inclusion of specific medications on the IU Health Plans formulary is based on the
medication's effectiveness, safety, and value.
The formulary offers a wide selection of generic and brand name prescription drugs suggested by the
Pharmacy and Therapeutics (P&T) Committee, a group of physicians and pharmacists who researches and
evaluates medications. The formulary is periodically reviewed and updated throughout the year in order to
ensure that our benefits package consistently and adequately meets your needs.
When you need a prescription medication, you and your doctor can choose from five different levels of the
formulary. These are Generics – Tier 1, Preferred Brands – Tier 2, Non‐Preferred Brands – Tier 3 and
Specialty – Tier 4. Each level has a different copayment. This gives you and your doctor the freedom to
choose the medication that is right for you. At the same time, this will help you to better budget your health
care dollars.
Preferred Generic Medications – Tier 1 have the lowest copayment/co‐insurance. Generic drugs
offer the same level of safety and quality as their brand‐name equivalents. They have the same amount
of active ingredients as brand‐name medications. You are required to use a generic version of the
drug if one is available.
Preferred‐Brand medications – Tier 2 have the middle level copayment/co‐insurance. These drugs are
brand medications and “preferred” because of their value and effectiveness.
Non‐Preferred Brand medications – Tier 3 have a higher copayment/co‐insurance level. These
medications are brand drugs that are more expensive and have similar effectiveness as tier 2 medications.
Specialty medications – Tier 4 have the highest copayment/co‐insurance level. These also include
Specialty medications which usually treat complex and rare conditions. These drugs can be high‐cost
medications and biologicals regardless of how they are administered (injectable, oral, transdermal, or
inhalant).

iuhealthplans.org
Non‐Formulary medications may be covered if the formulary medications do not work for you. If you
require a Non‐Formulary medication, your doctor may request coverage for the Tier 3 copayment by making
a request for an exception.
Understanding Our Symbols
Prior Authorization
You will see the symbol “PA” next to certain drugs on our formulary tables. This is called prior
authorization. Prior authorization helps ensure that you’re using the best drugs in the safest way.
If you are currently taking or recently prescribed one of these drugs, please discuss possible alternatives or
have your doctor request authorization by calling 866.822.6504.
Drugs that require prior authorization are often:
• Newer drugs for which the Health Plan wants to track usage.
• Non‐formulary drugs which require the use of formulary drugs prior to coverage. These drugs are
not used as a standard first option in treating a medical condition.
• Drugs with potential side effects that the Health Plan wants to monitor for patient safety.
• Drugs categorized as specialty medications.
Step Therapy
You will see the symbol “ST” (Step Therapy) next to certain drugs on the formulary tables in this
booklet. Step therapy ensures you are taking the most effective medication at the best cost. This means
trying the least expensive medications usually generic medications or drugs that are considered as the
standard first‐line treatment.
How step therapy works
Step 1: When your prescribed drug is impacted by step therapy, first you will be asked to try generic or
first‐line treatment drugs. The drug recommended will be approved by the Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) as providing the same health benefit at a much lower cost.
Step 2: If the generic drug in step 1 does not work for you, then you will have coverage for a brand‐name
drug. For more information on step therapy call 866.822.6504.
Quantity Limits
The symbol “QL” next to the drugs in this formulary booklet stands for Quantity Limits. To ensure you are
getting the most cost‐effective dose for your medication, a quantity limit or dose duration may be placed on
certain drugs. These limits are based on FDA guidelines, clinical literature, and manufacturer’s instructions.
Quantity limits promote appropriate use of the drug, prevent waste, and help control costs.
For some drugs, the dosing guidelines may recommend that patients take the drug one time a day in a
larger dose instead of several times a day in smaller doses. The quantity limits follow the guidelines and
cover one larger dose per day.
Prescriptions for controlled substances and specialty medications are limited to a 30‐day supply.
For more information on quantity limits or dose durations call 866.822.6504.

About Generic Drugs
Generic drugs have the same active ingredients as their brand‐name equivalents, but cost significantly less. Not
all drugs have a generic equivalent. Generally, new drugs receive patent protection for 20 years. Once the
patent expires, other pharmaceutical companies can produce the same drug in a generic formulation.
Companies that make generic drugs do not have to invest large amounts of money in research, since the
company making the brand‐name equivalent has already done this. Also, generic companies do not need to
advertise their drugs. As a result, generic drug makers can pass these savings on to you.
Generic drugs have the same active ingredients as brand‐name drugs, but their inactive ingredients can vary.
This is why the generic drug might look different from the brand‐name drug. Inactive ingredients can be dyes
used to color the drug or powders used to shape the tablets. Inactive ingredients do not affect how the generic
drug works.
The FDA regulates generic drug manufacturers just as it regulates the makers of brand‐name medications. The
generic drug must pass strict FDA measurements to ensure that it delivers the same amount of the active
ingredient in the same time frame as its brand‐name counterpart. The manufacturer of the generic drug must
prove that it produces its product under the same strict guidelines as the brand‐name drug.
How to Fill Your Prescription Medications
Short‐term medications
These are drugs you need immediately. This includes medications used to treat short term infections, or to
relieve pain temporarily. You can fill these prescriptions:

member ID card and written prescription and pay your copayment/co‐insurance as described above.
Long‐term medications

diabetes, etc. These medications can be mailed to your home for up to a 90‐ day supply.

Filling Your Prescription When Traveling
When you travel outside of your local area, thousands of pharmacies across the country will honor your IU
Health Plans member ID card.
To locate a participating pharmacy, contact your member services team at the phone number listed on the
back of your member ID card or on 1 page of this booklet.
To fill a prescription at a participating out‐of‐area pharmacy, present your IU Health Plans
member ID card. Some pharmacies may ask you to pay the full price of the medication. If that happens:
• Submit a Direct Reimbursement Claim form to IU Health Plans at:
IU Health Plans
Pharmacy Benefits Management
950 N. Meridian St.
Suite 600
Indianapolis, IN 46204
• Or you may call your member services team for assistance
• If your claim is approved, you will be reimbursed the amount that you paid for the medication, less
the appropriate copayment.
If you will be away from home for an extended period of time, or if you will be traveling outside of the
country, you may want to use our mail‐order service so that you receive a 90‐day supply before you
leave home.
Medication Supplies Not Covered by IU Health Plans
No authorizations will be provided for medications that are reported by the member, provider, or
pharmacy to be lost, misplaced, stolen, destroyed, or damaged.
Medications received at no charge to the member (workers’ compensation, medications purchased with a
manufacturer’s coupon, etc.) will not be covered.
Prescriptions that are written more than a year ago will not be covered. Your doctor will need to write a
new prescription.
