3 Preferred List INTRODUCTION UnitedHealthcare is pleased to provide this Preferred List (PDL) to be used when prescribing for patients covered by the pharmacy benefit plan offered by UnitedHealthcare. The drugs listed in this PDL are intended to provide sufficient options to treat patients who require treatment with a drug from that pharmacologic or therapeutic class. The drugs listed in the UnitedHealthcare PDL have been reviewed and approved by the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee. The drugs have been selected to provide the most clinically appropriate and cost-effective medications for patients who have their drug benefit administered through UnitedHealthcare. It is also recognized there may be occasions where an unlisted drug is desired for proper medical management of a specific patient. In those infrequent instances, the unlisted medication may be requested through the prior authorization process. The drugs represented have been reviewed by the Pharmacy and Therapeutics (P&T) Committee and are approved for inclusion. The PDL is reflective of current medical practice as of the date of review. This edition incorporates drugs added to the PDL since the last edition as well as numerous revisions to the prescribing information based on changes in pharmacotherapy. Comments and suggestions from practicing physicians have also been incorporated to ensure that the UnitedHealthcare PDL is reflective of current medical practice. NOTICE The information contained in this PDL and its appendices is provided by UnitedHealthcare, solely for the convenience of contracted providers. UnitedHealthcare does not warrant or assure accuracy of such information nor is it intended to be comprehensive in nature. This PDL is not intended to be a substitute for the knowledge, expertise, skill and judgment of the medical provider in their choice of prescription drugs. UnitedHealthcare assumes no responsibility for the actions or omissions of any medical provider based upon reliance, in whole or in part, on the information contained herein. The medical provider should consult the drug manufacturer s product literature or standard references for more detailed information. National guidelines can be found on the websites listed in the website section or go to the National Guideline Clearinghouse site at PREFACE The UnitedHealthcare PDL is organized by sections. Each section includes therapeutic groups identified by either a drug class or disease state. Products are listed by name. Brand names are included as a reference to assist in product recognition. Unless exceptions are noted, generally all applicable dosage forms and strengths of the drug cited are included in the PDL. Generics should be considered the first line of prescribing. The UnitedHealthcare PDL covers selected over-thecounter (OTC) products. You are encouraged to prescribe OTC medications when clinically appropriate. PHARMACY AND THERAPEUTICS (P&T) COMMITTEE The P&T Committee includes physicians and pharmacists who are not employees or agents of UnitedHealthcare or its affiliates. They must adhere to the Ethics Policy standards of the P&T Committee. UnitedHealthcare medical directors and pharmacists also participate in the P&T Committee. The P&T Committee meets quarterly to discuss a variety of issues. Those issues pertaining to Doc#: UHC1335a_ i

4 pharmaceutical selection and pharmacy program management are communicated quarterly. This newsletter is distributed to all participating physicians who have received the PDL. PDL decisions are also communicated quarterly on the UnitedHealthcare internet site. OUTPATIENT PRESCRIPTION DRUG BENEFIT COVERED MEDICATIONS Medically necessary outpatient prescription drugs are covered when prescribed by a provider licensed to prescribe federal legend drugs or medicines. Special formula nutrition needs for metabolic patients are also covered. Some items are covered only with prior authorization. Eligibility for Outpatient Prescription Benefits and copays are based on the individual member s benefit plan. PRODUCT SELECTION CRITERIA The P&T Committee considers clinical information on new-to-market drugs that are typically included in an outpatient pharmacy benefit. The evaluation includes all or part of the following: Safety Efficacy Comparison studies Approved indications Adverse effects Contraindications/Warnings/Precautions Pharmacokinetics Patient administration/compliance considerations Outcome and pharmacoeconomic studies When a new drug is considered for PDL inclusion, it will be reviewed relative to similar drugs currently included in the UnitedHealthcare PDL. This review process may result in deletion of drug(s) in a particular therapeutic class in an effort to continually promote the most clinically useful and cost-effective agents. All the information in the PDL is provided as a reference for drug therapy selection. Specific drug selection for an individual patient rests solely with the prescriber. PDL PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS To assist in understanding which specific strengths and dosage forms are covered on the PDL, examples are noted below. The general principles shown in the examples can then usually be extended to other entries in the book. Any exceptions are noted in the drug list. There may also be a statement associated with a drug list that gives additional information about which specific products or dosage forms are covered. Products covered include all strengths associated with the dosage form of the cited name product. levetiracetam KEPPRA All strengths of Keppra would be covered by this listing. Dosage forms covered will be consistent with the category and use where listed. Neomycin/polymixin B/ Hydrocortisone CORTISPORIN As listed in the EAR section, this is limited to the otic solution and suspension. From this entry the ophthalmic solution and ointment, and the topical cream cannot be assumed to be on the list unless there are entries for these products in the EYE and DERMATOLOGICAL sections of the PDL. When a strength or dosage form is specified, only the specified strength and dosage form is on the PDL. Other strengths/dosage forms of the reference product are not metoprolol 50mg & 100 mg only LOPRESSOR GENERIC SUBSTITUTION The UnitedHealthcare PDL requires substitution on the majority of products when a equivalent is available. Generic substitution is a pharmacy action whereby a equivalent is dispensed rather than the name product. The PDL indicated availability in the column. If a name drug is medically necessary, please submit a prior authorization request. The UnitedHealthcare Maximum Allowable Cost (MAC) list sets a ceiling price for the reimbursement of certain multisource prescription drugs. This price will typically cover the acquisition of most s but not ed versions of the same drug. The products selected for inclusion on the MAC list are commonly prescribed and dispensed and have usually gone through the FDA s review and approval process. An important consideration for substitution is the knowledge that all approvals of drugs by the FDA since 1984, and many approvals prior to 1984, have a showing of bioequivalence between the versions and the reference product. To gain FDA approval: 1. The drug must contain the same active ingredient(s), be the same strength and the same dosage form as the name product. Doc#: UHC1335a_ ii

5 2. The FDA has given the an A rating compared to the ed product indicating bioequivalence, and has determined the is therapeutically equivalent to the reference. The ratings of drugs are available by referring to the FDA reference, Approved Products with Therapeutic Equivalence Evaluations (Orange Book). When the above two criteria are met, a can be substituted with the full expectation that the substituted product will produce the same clinical effect and safety profile as the prescribed product. products that have a narrow therapeutic index (NTI) can also be guided by these principles. It is not necessary for the health care provider to approach any one therapeutic class of drug products (e.g., NTI drugs) differently from any other class, when there has been a determination of therapeutic equivalence by the FDA for the drug products under consideration. Also, additional clinical tests or examinations by the physician are not needed when a therapeutically equivalent drug product is substituted for the name product. There are now many name products that are repackaged or distributed under a label. The label version should always be considered therapeutically equivalent and substitutable for the source ed product. DRUG EFFICACY STUDY IMPLEMENTATION (DESI) DRUGS s first marketed between 1938 and 1962 were approved as safe but required no showing of effectiveness for FDA approval. Beginning in 1962, all new drugs were required to be both safe and effective before they could be marketed. This legislation also applied retroactively to all drugs approved as safe from The DESI program was established by the FDA to review the effectiveness of these pre-1962 drugs for their labeled indications, and a determination of fully effective was made for most of these products and they remain in the marketplace. A few DESI products remain classified as less than fully effective while awaiting final administrative disposition. Also, classified as DESI are many products listed as identical, similar, or related to actual DESI products. UnitedHealthcare PDL does not cover DESI less than fully effective drg products. PLAN EXCLUSIONS The following drug categories are excluded from coverage under the outpatient pharmacy benefit and are not part of the UnitedHealthcare PDL. DESI drugs Antiobesity agents Experimental / research drugs Cosmetic drugs Immunization agents Nutritional / diet supplements Blood and blood plasma products Agents used to promote fertility Doc#: UHC1335a_ iii Agents used for erectile dysfunction Agents used for cosmetic hair growth s from manufacturers that do not participate in the FFS Medicaid Rebate Program Diagnostic products Medical supplies and DME except as listed: syringes, needles, lancets, alcohol swabs, spacers, preferred diabetes test strips, peak flow meters (Astech, Assess, Peak Air s, max two per year), vaporizer (limit of 1 per 3 years), humidifier (limit of 1 per 3 years) Mirena DAYS SUPPLY DISPENSING LIMITATIONS UnitedHealthcare members may receive up to a one month supply of a specific medication per prescription order or prescription refill. A medication may be reordered or refilled when eighty-five percent (85%) of the medication has been utilized. If a claim is submitted before 85% of the medication has been used, based on the original day supply submitted on the claim, the claim will reject with a "refill too soon" message. Please call the UnitedHealthcare Pharmacy Department at with questions or for help with dosage change authorization. MANDATORY GENERIC SUBSTITUTION The UnitedHealthcare PDL requires mandatory substitution on the vast majority of products when a equivalent is available; however, name drugs may be covered in certain situations by requesting a prior authorization. The UnitedHealthcare PDL prior authorization (PA) list does not include ed items where a equivalent is covered. PRIOR AUTHORIZATION OF NON-PDL MEDICATIONS The drugs in the UnitedHealthcare PDL have been selected to provide the most clinically appropriate and cost-effective medications for patients who have their drug benefit administered through UnitedHealthcare. It is also recognized that there may be occasions where an unlisted drug is desired for the proper medical management of a specific patient. In those infrequent instances, the prior authorization process reviews requests for unlisted medications the physician may consider medically necessary for patient management. Requests for these exceptions should be made in writing by the physician and faxed to: UnitedHealthcare Pharmacy Services Department Fax Phone A prior authorization request form is available in the UnitedHealthcare provider manual and should be used for all prior authorization requests if possible. Appropriate documentation must be provided to support the medical

6 necessity of the non-pdl request. The UnitedHealthcare Pharmacy Department will respond to all requests in accordance with state requirements. Physicians are requested to adhere to this PDL when prescribing for patients covered by their pharmacy benefit plan offered by UnitedHealthcare. If a pharmacist receives a prescription for a non-pdl drug, the pharmacist should contact the prescribing physician and request that the prescription be changed to a medication included in this PDL. If a PDL alternative is not appropriate the physician should then be instructed to contact the Plan for a prior authorization. Please contact the UnitedHealthcare Pharmacy Department at with questions concerning the prior authorization process. NON-PDL DRUGS 5-DAY OVERRIDES To ensure the use of PDL drugs, all non- PDL drugs should be discussed with the prescribing physician. If you cannot speak to the physician immediately, and there is an immediate need for the medication, the claim processing system will accept an override to permit a one-time dispensing of a 5-day supply of the newly prescribed non-pdl drug. The pharmacy should submit a claim for a 5 day supply, with a PA Type of 8 and Prior Authorization number of Please note that non-preferred drugs are available for a 5- day supply, however availability is subject to the benefit design. For assistance, pharmacies may call Pharmacies may dispense a one-time, 15-day supply to members requiring an immediate supply of an ongoing medication. The pharmacist must contact the plan to obtain a manual 15-day override. Before the next dispensing, the pharmacy must contact the physician to discuss a PDL drug or if a prior authorization request is warranted. If the prescribing physician feels a drug is medically necessary, the physician may fax a request for prior authorization to UnitedHealthcare at , Attn: Pharmacy Department. QUANTITY LIMITATIONS (QL) Prescriptions for monthly quantities greater than the indicated limit require a prior authorization request. Quantity limits based on Efficient Medication Dosing The Efficient Medication Dosing Program is designed to consolidate medication dosage to the most efficient daily quantity to increase adherence to therapy and also promote the efficient use of health care dollars. The limits for the program are established based on FDA approval for dosing and the availability of the total daily dose in the least amount of tablets or capsules daily. Quantity Limits in the prescription claims processing system will limit the dispensing to consolidate dosing. The Doc#: UHC1335a_ iv pharmacy claims processing system will prompt the pharmacist to request a new prescription order from the physician. Controlled Substances You may fill any FOUR medications from the following classes in a 30-day period: opiate analgesics benzodiazepines sedative hypnotic agents barbiturates select muscle relaxants Additional fills will require prior authorization. Medications in these classes may also be subject to individual quantity limits. Additions to the QL program drug list will be made from time to time and providers notified accordingly. As always, we recognize that a number of patient-specific variables must be taken into consideration when drug therapy is prescribed and therefore overrides will be available through the medical exception (prior authorization) process. Please contact the UnitedHealthcare Pharmacy Department at with questions. Specialty Pharmaceutical Management Program UnitedHealthcare is continuously looking for ways to provide high quality cost effective care for Plan members. The Specialty Pharmaceutical Management Program helps UnitedHealthcare to achieve these goals. Injectable medications that are part of this program require plan authorization and are not available through the retail pharmacy network. To obtain authorization, the provider must submit the appropriate prior authorization form to the UnitedHealthcare Prior Authorization Department via fax at The UnitedHealthcare Pharmacy Department will review and respond to all requests in accordance with state requirements, and if authorized for payment, UnitedHealthcare, will coordinate delivery of the product to the member or provider. s that are part of this program and are on the PDL are identified in this booklet by the designation "SP". Prior authorization request forms should be faxed to the UnitedHealthcare Pharmacy Department at STEP THERAPY (ST) The following PDL drugs are routinely covered only after a sufficient trial of an indicated first-line agent has been adequately tried and failed.
