Prescription drug formularies

Formularies are designed to promote safe, effective and affordable drug therapy.

  • You can search the formulary alphabetically, by entering a portion of the drug name, or by therapeutic class
  • See additional information about each medication, including special considerations about the prescription, when applicable

Prescription drug plan information

  • There are four types of in-network pharmacies: 
    • Retail pharmacy – A pharmacy that can supply up to a one-month supply of prescription medications.
    • Preferred retail pharmacy – A preferred retail pharmacy can supply up to a 90-day supply of prescription medications.
    • Mail-order pharmacy – A mail-order pharmacy can provide up to a 90-day supply of maintenance medications and delivers prescriptions directly to your home. 
      All covered members and their qualified dependents have access to these mail order pharmacies. Your network provisions may require the use of just one of these mail order pharmacies for coverage. Please call the Providence Health Plan Pharmacy Department at 877-216-3644 if you have questions.
    • Specialty pharmacy – A pharmacy that provides specialty medications – medications that require special delivery, handling, administration and monitoring by a pharmacist. They are listed on the formulary with the status of “specialty.” Specialty drugs are available through Credena Health. Some specialty drugs are only available in select pharmacies. If Credena Health is not able to provide a specialty medication, members should contact the Pharmacy Department at 503-574-7400 or 877-216-3644.

  • Prior authorization – A limited number of prescriptions need to be prior authorized before the drug is dispensed. Many factors – including serious risks, Food and Drug Administration approved indications and cost-effectiveness – are considered before making the decision to require prior authorization of a prescription medication. The prior-authorization process is initiated by your provider. Talk with your doctor or other health care provider to initiate prior authorization or consider changing your prescription to an effective formulary alternative.
