Pharmacy resources

Providence Health Plan is pleased to provide plan members with a comprehensive prescription drug formulary designed to promote safe, effective, and affordable drug therapy.

Your formulary is easy to search, includes information about the medication, and includes special considerations about the prescription, if they apply.




Finding and searching your formulary

Find your medical plan below by first selecting the type of health plan you have to determine which formulary applies to you and your plan. Once selected, you can search your online formulary for the prescriptions you are inquiring about.


Tip: There may be times when you require a medication that is not on the formulary. If you currently take a prescription drug not on the formulary, contact customer service to make sure the drug is not covered. If the prescription drug is not covered, your provider may request an exception be made.
