Commonly Prescribed Medications from Empire’s Formulary
To assist you in making informed choices regarding your prescription drug plan, we are providing you with this abbreviated version of Empire’sformulary, our preferred drug list. Empire’s formulary is developed by our Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee. This committee regularlyreviews and selects new and existing drugs to ensure the formulary remains responsive to the needs of our members. All formulary drugs havebeen approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Choosing drugs from the formulary can lower a member’s cost and save money every time a prescription is filled because
formulary drugs have lower copayments.

How members can save on prescription costs:
• Ask your physician to prescribe drugs on Empire’s formulary and be sure to bring the formulary with you to every doctor visit.
• Ask your physician to consider prescribing generic substitutions whenever possible. Generics result in lower costs to you. All generic drugs are approved by
the FDA; they are as effective as their brand-name alternatives and meet the same quality and safety standards.
• Keep in mind that brand-name drugs not on this list will generally cost you the most money.
How your Empire pharmacy coverage works:
Every time you fill a covered prescription, you pay a copay amount. Copayment amount may appear next to either “Rx” or “Rx Co-Pay” on your
member ID card. If you do not see any copayments indicated, please refer to your benefits material.
ID cards issued prior to July 2005 look like this:
ID cards issued after July 2005 look like this:
If your plan has 3 copayment amounts, you will pay the lowest amount for generic drugs, the middle amount for brand-name drugs
listed on the formulary and the highest amount for brand-name drugs not listed on the formulary.
If your plan has only 2 copayment amounts, you will pay the lower amount for generic drugs and the higher amount for brand-name
drugs listed on the formulary. Check your benefit materials to see whether your plan covers brand-name drugs not listed on the formulary. If
your plan does cover drugs not listed on the formulary, then you will pay the higher amount for those.
The formulary is subject to change, so to get the most up-to-date and complete medication listings:
• Empire members can register or log on to Member Online Services at www.empireblue.com. From your secure, personalized home page, link to the Pharmacy.
• If you are not yet a registered Empire member, simply go to www.empireblue.com and click on “Search the Formulary.”
• If you do not have Internet access, you can call Member Services at the phone number on the back of your member ID card.
Important:
• Certain drugs require prior authorization by Empire before you fill a prescription. They are noted on this list as “PAR” (prior authorization required). Some drugs have
quantity limits and require authorization only if a prescription is written for more than the monthly allowed amount. They are noted as “QL” (quantity limit) on thislist. Your physician or pharmacist can request any required authorization by calling Empire Pharmacy Services at the Member Services phone number listed on theback of your member ID card. If the PAR drug or the additional quantity of a drug is approved, it will be covered under Empire’s pharmacy plan.
• In order for certain specialty injectable medications to be covered under Empire's pharmacy plan, prescriptions for these medications must be filled by PrecisionRx Specialty Solutions. Those particular medications are listed with the symbol SRx next to them. For further information regarding filling a prescription with PrecisionRxSpecialty Solutions, call toll free 1-800-870-6419, Monday - Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. EST.
• Some generic and/or brand-name drugs included in this formulary may not be covered by all health plans. Please check your benefit materials or contact Member Services for coverage details under your specific plan.
How to use this list:
• Brand-name drugs start with the first letter of their name in a capital letter, e.g., “Altace.”
• Generic drugs appear all in lowercase letters, e.g.,”atenolol.”
