Our Prescription Drug List Members enrolled in a plan with a prescription drug benefit have access to medications that are on Southern Health s Prescription Drug List. A Prescription Drug List is a list of approved medications covered by Southern Health. The Prescription Drug List includes a list of both brand name and generic medications. You also have access at a higher copayment to medically-necessary prescription drugs not listed on the Prescription Drug List. The 2006 Prescription Drug List, self-administered injectable drugs, preauthorization drugs, a list of drugs with quantity limits, and drugs with mail order exclusions are on the following pages. Preauthorization If PA is listed next to a drug on the Prescription Drug List, preauthorization is required. Your physician must receive preauthorization from Southern Health before you fill the prescription. If preauthorization is not received, your medication may not be covered. Southern Health is a registered trade name of Southern Health Services, Inc. and Coventry Health and Life Insurance Company. HMO and POS products are underwritten by Southern Health Services, Inc. PPO products are underwritten by Coventry Health and Life Insurance Company and administered by Southern Health Services, Inc. Members includes members of Coventry Health and Life Insurance Company administered by Southern Health.
2 Quantity Limits Some medications on the Prescription Drug List have restrictions on the quantity that Southern Health will cover. Preauthorization may be required if the dosage of the medication being prescribed varies from the FDA and manufacturer s recommended dose. Generic Drugs Southern Health s program requires mandatory generic substitution if the FDA has determined the generic to be equivalent to the brand product. We believe generic medications are as safe and effective as their brand name equivalents as determined by the FDA. If there is a generic equivalent available but you choose to use the brand drug, you will pay the applicable copayment plus the difference in cost between the generic and the brand. Online Drug List Our online Prescription Drug List will provide you with important information such as generic and preferred drug alternatives, quantity limits, or preauthorization requirements. You also can access the mail order program. To use the online formulary, visit the Members section of and click on the link for Prescription Formulary on the right side of the page. Important points to remember when accessing your pharmacy benefits You must use your ID card or have your membership information available to fill a prescription. You may only file a claim for reimbursement for a prescription after it was purchased if it is a true emergency. Exceptions may be made if you have not yet received your ID card but need to fill a prescription. If PA is listed next to a drug, preauthorization is required. Retail prescriptions must be filled at a participating pharmacy or a nonparticipating pharmacy that has agreed to accept Southern Health s reimbursement rate as payment in full. You pay the appropriate copayment or the cost of the medication if it is less than the copayment. You also may have a retail maintenance benefit. Contact the Pharmacy Help Desk at for information regarding the retail maintenance benefit. If you take specific maintenance medications on a regular basis, you may be eligible to get your prescriptions filled through the mail order program. The mail order benefit allows up to a 90-day supply to be delivered directly to your home. Southern Health does not cover certain controlled substances through the mail order program.
