Drugs covered on a pharmacy plan (formulary)
You will find a list of covered medications, or a formulary, on OmedaRx (see also the drug list and formulary links on this page). The formulary is a list of generic, brand name and specialty medications that are approved by an independent committee of doctors and pharmacists.
To find out which formulary applies to your health plan, sign in and select the Benefits & coverage page in the Member dashboard menu. Your benefit booklet or summary of benefits and coverage can supply this information.
To fill a prescription, bring your prescription to a network pharmacy near you and show your member ID card.

Prior authorization (pre-authorization) of prescribed medication

Common prescription costs and generic medication information
You can search for the average price of common medications in the OmedaRx price guide. Generic drugs are copies of brand-name drugs that are just as effective and often less expensive. See OmedaRx.com for a list of generic medications.
Preventive medications and birth control coverage
As a BridgeSpan member, preventive drugs are included with your benefits. This means you don't need to pay a copay, coinsurance, or meet your deductible for preventive drugs, including birth control. The preventive medications list explains this benefit in more detail.
