IHN-CCO uses a “formulary” for prescription drugs. A formulary is a list of covered prescription drugs. All IHN-CCO providers have a copy of the formulary in their office. When you need a prescription, your doctor will choose a drug from the formulary. Drugs that are not on the formulary are called non-formulary.
If for some reason you need a drug that is not on the IHN-CCO formulary, your doctor can ask for an exception. Our Pharmacy Director will decide if it is medically necessary for you to have a drug that is non-formulary. If you have a high medical need for the prescription, we will pay for the non-formulary drug.
Search our formulary by medication name or type. Search results include:
- Any restrictions for the drug, such as prior authorization, quantity limits or step therapy requirements;
- The effective date of the formulary and the date it was last updated.
