Drug List (Formulary).

Community Health Choice (HMO D-SNP) covers both brand name drugs and generic drugs. Generic drugs have the same active-ingredient formula as a brand name drug. Generic drugs usually cost less than brand name drugs and are rated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be as safe and effective as brand name drugs.

Members can contact the plan for a printed copy of the most recent list of drugs or view the link below.

The formulary may change throughout the year, you can call Member Services for the most current list. 

Prescription Drug Transition Policy

If you are new to Community Health Choice (HMO D-SNP) and are taking a non-formulary drug, you are eligible for a temporary supply of your non-formulary drug. A non-formulary drug includes a drug that is not on Community’s formulary or a drug on the formulary that has special requirements. Our transition policy ensures that you can get a one-time temporary fill of at least one month’s supply* of the drug anytime during the first 90 days of your membership in Community Health Choice (HMO D-SNP). The prescription must be filled at a network pharmacy.

You and your doctor will receive a transition notice from us. This will allow you time to talk to your doctor or other prescriber about pursuing other options available to you within our formulary. Community Health Choice (HMO D-SNP) cannot continue to pay for these medications under the transition policy, even if you have been a member for less than 90 days following your one month transition supply.

*If your prescription is written for fewer days, you will be allowed to fill your drug multiple times to provide at least one month’s supply of medication. If you receive a transition supply, you will receive a letter from Community Health Choice (HMO D-SNP) notifying you that you have received a temporary supply of your prescription drug. Please refer to your Evidence of Coverage for more detailed information on the transition process.

Medication Therapy Management

If you’re in a Medicare drug plan and you have complex health needs, you may be able to participate in a Medication Therapy Management (MTM) program. MTM is a service offered by Community Health Choice (“Community”) at no additional cost to you. Learn more about the MTM program by clicking the link below.
