What if a drug I need is not listed?

Please check the formulary for different brand and generic names. If you still cannot locate your drugs, your plan may not offer coverage. Talk to your doctor first about changing your prescription to a drug on your plans formulary. If this is not an option, you can request an exception to have the plan review its coverage decision based on your individual circumstances.
