  • MDwise Formulary Introduction –

    Hoosier Healthwise (HHW)

    HHW members must use MDwise network pharmacies to access their

    prescription drug benefit.

    How do I use the formulary? There are two ways to find your drug within the formulary:

    Medical Condition

    Drugs in this formulary are grouped into categories depending on the type of medical

    conditions that they are used to treat. For example, drugs used to treat a heart condition

    are listed under the category “Cardiovascular Disease”. Then look under the category

    name for your drug.

    Alphabetical Listing

    The Index provides an alphabetical list of all of the drugs included in this formulary.

    Both brand name drugs and generic drugs are listed in the Index. Look in the Index and

    find your drug. Next to your drug, you will see the page number where you can find

    coverage information. Turn to the page listed in the Index and find the name of your

    drug in the first column of the list. The formulary provides coverage information about

    drugs covered by the plan. If you have trouble finding your drug in the list, turn to the

    Index.

    All drugs are listed by their generic names and most common proprietary (branded)

    name. The Formulary may be accessed by using the Index, either by generic or

    proprietary name or by therapeutic drug category. In situations where an FDA-approved

    generic equivalent is available, brand names are listed for reference purposes only, and

    do not denote coverage for the brand name, unless specifically noted. All drugs are listed

    in each category in alphabetical order by generic name. Where an FDA-approved generic

    is available for the listed generic name, the generic name is bolded.

  • A generic drug has the same active-ingredient as the brand name drug. Generic drugs

    usually cost less than brand name drugs and are approved by the Food and Drug

    Administration (FDA), which assures that the following conditions are met.

    • The generic drug must contain the same active ingredients, be the same strength, and

    the same dosage form as the brand name drug.

    • The FDA has given an “A” rating compared to the brand name drug and thus the

    generic drug is determined to be therapeutically bioequivalent.

    • When the above two criteria are met, a generic can be substituted with the full

    expectation that the substituted product will produce the same clinical effect and

    safety profile as the prescribed product.

    Additional Requirements

    Some covered drugs may have additional requirements or limits on coverage. These

    requirements and limits may include:

    • Prior Authorization: MDwise requires you or your physician to get prior

    authorization for certain drugs. This means that you will need to get approval from

    the pharmacy benefits manager (MedImpact) before you fill your prescription. If you

    don’t get approval, the drug may not be covered. Drugs that are subject to a prior

    authorization will have a “PA” symbol next to the drug. Physicians and Pharmacies

    call (844) 336-2677 or FAX: (858) 790-7100.

    • Quantity Limits: For certain drugs, the plan limits the amount of the drug that is

    covered. Drugs that are subject to a quantity limit will have a “QL” symbol next to

    the drug.

    • Refill Limitations: Prescriptions may be refilled when 75% or more of the days’

    supply has been used.

    • Step Therapy: In some cases, the plan requires you to first try certain drugs to treat

    your medical condition before it will cover another drug for that condition. For

    example, if Drug A and Drug B both treat your medical condition, we may not cover

    Drug B unless you try Drug A first. If Drug A does not work for you, we will then

    cover Drug B. Drugs that are subject to Step Therapy will have a “ST” symbol next

    to the drug.

    • Age Limit: In some cases, drugs are only available to a member in a select age

    category. Drugs that are subject to an Age Limit will have an “AGE” symbol next to

    the drug.

    • Gender Limit: Some drugs are only available to members of a certain gender. Drugs

    that are available to only a certain gender will have a “G” symbol next to the drug.

    You can find out if your drug has any additional requirements or limits by looking in the

    formulary starting on the next page.

    customer service center at (844) 336-2677.
