4 Your Prescription Drug Program The UPMC for You Prescription Drug Formulary is a list of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved medications. This list has been developed by UPMC for You doctors and pharmacists. UPMC for You provides coverage (pays for) for medications on the formulary (drug list). The drugs on the formulary were selected because they are safe, work well, and cost less than other drugs that have the same level of effectiveness. For your convenience, there is a list of prescription medications and a list of over-the-counter (OTC) medications. These lists are in alphabetical order. The UPMC for You formulary includes the most commonly used drugs. It does not include every medication your doctor might prescribe. UPMC for You covers many other drugs besides the ones listed in the formulary. To find out if your medication is covered, ask your pharmacist or call UPMC for You Member Services. Your doctor should order medications for you from the formulary. A non-formulary medication is one that is not on the list of medications covered by UPMC for You. If your doctor writes you a prescription for a non-formulary medicine, he or she will need to contact Pharmacy Services at UPMC (8762) for a medical exception. You will not be able to get the medication until we authorize the exception. Some prescription medications have to be approved by UPMC for You. This is called prior authorization. The medication your provider is asking for is reviewed for medical necessity. This means we need to understand why the medication is needed to treat your specific condition. All requests for medications requiring a prior authorization are reviewed by the UPMC for You Pharmacy Department. Decisions to approve or deny will be made within 24 hours of the request. If the request is denied, you will receive a letter explaining why it was denied. The letter will also tell you how to file a grievance if you are not satisfied with the decision. For more information about how to file a grievance see Section 6 of your member handbook. You can get some over-the-counter medications when your doctor writes a prescription for them. Please refer to the UPMC for You Over-the-Counter formulary in this book for a listing of covered products. If you have any questions, call Member Services. Pharmacy Copayments Some members may need to pay a small amount to the pharmacist for their medications. This is called a copayment. The pharmacist will let you know if a copayment applies to you. If you need a medication and truly cannot pay the copayment amount at the time you pick up the prescription, the pharmacy will give you the prescribed medication and bill you for the copayment. You will still owe the pharmacy the copayment for that prescription and the pharmacy will require you to pay the copayment. Pharmacy copayments do not apply to pregnant women (including through the postpartum period), recipients under the age of 18, nursing facility residents, and those who reside in an Intermediate Care Facility for the Intellectually Disabled and Other Related Conditions (ICF/ID/ORC) and recipients eligible under the Breast and Cervical Cancer Prevention and Treatment coverage group and Titles IV-B Foster Care and IV-E Foster Care and Adoption Assistance. Pharmacy copayments also do not apply to emergency supplies and family planning supplies. Copayment Information If you have pharmacy benefits, brand-name prescription drugs and brand-name over-the-counter drugs are $3 for each new prescription or refill. If you have pharmacy benefits, generic prescription drugs and generic over-the-counter drugs are $1 for each new prescription or refill. Drugs, including immunizations, dispensed by a physician are excluded from copayments. You do not have to pay a copayment for certain drugs: anti-hypertensives (high blood pressure drugs), antineoplastics (cancer drugs), anti-diabetics (diabetes drugs), anti-convulsants (epilepsy drugs), cardiovascular preparations (heart disease drugs), anti-parkinson s agents (Parkinson s disease drugs), HIV/AIDS drugs, anti-glaucoma agents (glaucoma drugs), anti-psychotics If you have any questions, call UPMC for You Member Services at Representatives are available Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. TTY users should call toll-free at

5 (drugs for psychosis), and anti-depressants (drugs for depression). If you have questions about copayments, please call Member Services. Plan Exclusions The following medications are not covered under the Medical Assistance Program: DESI drugs. DESI (Drug Efficacy Study Implementation) drugs are classified by the FDA as being safe but not effective since these drugs did not have the appropriate studies done to prove they are effective. Drugs from manufacturers not participating in the Medicaid Drug Rebate Program. Erectile dysfunction medications. Experimental/investigational medications. Drugs used for cosmetic purposes. Drugs used for fertility purposes. Weight loss drugs. Dispensing Limitations Prescriptions must be dispensed by a network pharmacy. Some network pharmacies can provide up to a 90-day supply of maintenance drug for one copayment. Please ask your pharmacist or call our Member Services representatives to see if your pharmacy participates in this program. A maintenance medication is one that you take on a regular basis for a chronic or long-term condition. Antibiotics, controlled substances, and specialty medications are limited to a maximum 30-day supply per copayment. Controlled substances are drugs with high abuse potential and have a schedule II-V classification according to the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Specialty drugs are high-cost medications used to treat complex diseases. These medications usually require specialized handling and close monitoring by a doctor. Please ask your pharmacist or call our Member Services representatives to determine which drugs can be filled for a 90-day supply. A medication may be refilled when 85% of the medication has been used. Authorizations for medications that are lost/misplaced, stolen, or destroyed/damaged must be reviewed by the UPMC for You Pharmacy Services Department. Coverage and Prior Authorization Review Process Your medication may require a review prior to coverage by UPMC for You. The types of review for coverage or exception include the following: Prior authorization (requires your medication be review for medical necessity) Step therapy (requires that you must try another medication first) Non-formulary (requires that you try formulary medications) Quantity limits (requires you to take the recommended amounts of the medication) If your medication requires a review, then your doctor or other health care provider must contact Pharmacy Services. Your doctor or health care provider can do the following: Fax a prior authorization request form to Pharmacy Services at Your doctor can find the form on the UPMC Health Plan website at Call UPMC (8762) for urgent requests. UPMC for You will respond to all requests for coverage or exception within 24 hours. You and your doctor will get a written notice of the decision. If the request is denied, the written notice will explain how to appeal the denial. If you have been receiving the medication and your request is denied, you can file a complaint, grievance, or request a fair hearing. If your request is hand delivered or postmarked within 10 days of the written notice of the If you have any questions, call UPMC for You Member Services at Representatives are available Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. TTY users should call toll-free at

6 decision, you can get your medication while you wait for a decision about your appeal. Additional information on how to file an appeal can be found in your member handbook. Your medication may be approved for a certain time period. After that time, your doctor will need to make sure your medication is still covered for you. Temporary Supplies While UPMC for You is reviewing the request for an exception, the pharmacist may give you a 15-day supply of the medication if your prescription qualifies as an ongoing medication that you have been taking. If it is a new medication, the pharmacist will give you a 72- hour supply if you have an immediate need for it. If the pharmacist feels that taking the requested medication alone or along with other medications you are taking will hurt your health or safety, the prescribing provider will be contacted before giving you the medication. Generic Medications UPMC for You requires that generic medications be given to you when available. Generic drugs have the same active ingredients as their brand-name counterparts and are just as safe and effective. Doctors are encouraged to prescribe generic medications whenever clinically appropriate. If your doctor prescribes a drug by brand name, your pharmacist will give you a generic version of that drug. If your doctor thinks you need the brand-name version of the drug, your doctor will need to call Pharmacy Services at UPMC (8762). Representatives are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you have any questions, call UPMC for You Member Services at Representatives are available Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. TTY users should call toll-free at

7 Step Therapy Step therapy medications require that you try specific medications first. The step therapy medications are automatically covered if we have a record that the required medication has been tried first. If there is no record that the required medication has been tried, your doctor is required to consult with UPMC for You Pharmacy Services before your pharmacy plan will cover the step therapy medication. The drugs in the following table require step therapy: Step Therapy Medications Acitretin Alprazolam ODT Avandia Celebrex Clonazepam ODT Clozapine ODT Dificid Granisetron Irbesartan Irbesartan/HCTZ Januvia Juvisync Levalbuterol Olanzapine-fluoxetine Symlin Tradjenta Valsartan Valsartan/HCTZ 4

10 Quantity Limits The UPMC for You Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee has established quantity limits on certain drugs to encourage the appropriate use of these drugs. Quantity limits are drug-specific and limit the amount of certain drugs that can be dispensed in a specified period of time. These limits are based on the Food and Drug Administration s recommended dosing, clinical literature, and manufacturer s instructions. For some drugs, the dosing guidelines may recommend taking 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. For example, a prescription for tramadol is limited to 240 tablets per month, a prescription for Prolia is limited to two vials per year, and a prescription for quetiapine is limited to three tablets per day. Your doctor is required to consult with UPMC for You Pharmacy Services if you require more than the quantity limit of your medication.
