What's a preferred drug?

Posted by:

The prescription drug program includes a preferred drug list, sometimes called a formulary. A preferred drug is a drug that meets a patient's clinical needs at a lower cost than other drugs. Preferred drugs are FDA-approved and selected for their safety, quality, effectiveness and cost efficiency. The preferred drug list is included in your Prescription Drug Benefit Kit and available on the Express Scripts website here. This list is subject to change.
