Find the medicines you need

Keeping track of your medicine is important. We want you to feel comfortable knowing that your prescription coverage is there for you.

What medicines are covered?

Your Humana Medical Plan covers a full range of safe and effective medicines. These medicines are part of a formulary, or Preferred Drug List (PDL). Depending on your plan, the medicines on the PDL may require a copayment—also called a copay.

What will be my copay?

If you have a copay, the information below should help you know what to expect.

  • Generic drugs: $1 copay for a monthly supply
  • Brand drugs: $4 copay for a monthly supply

Products in the classes below are exceptions to the brand/generic rules and will have different copays:

  • Atypical antipsychotics: $1.00 copay
  • Long-acting injectable antipsychotics: $1.00 copay
  • Contraceptives for family planning: $0.00 copay
  • Tobacco cessation: $0.00 copay

Diabetes supplies will have exceptions to the brand/generic rules and will have copays as follows:

  • Blood glucose meters and supplies: $0.00 copay

Your doctor will use the PDL to choose the best medicine for you.

Humana will cover your use of a medicine from the PDL as long as there is a medical need for you to take it. You also need to fill your prescription at a Humana network pharmacy and follow other plan rules.

Prior authorizations

Getting medicines that are not on the PDL will take extra steps in order to be covered (also known as prior authorization).

Medication therapy management

Medication Therapy Management (MTM) is a program that seeks to enhance your medication therapy and to minimize adverse drug reactions. Humana’s MTM program uses a variety of resources, such as telephone-based and pharmacy-based consultation services, for ambulatory and institutional beneficiaries. Humana works with community pharmacies to provide eligible Medicaid members with a series of face-to-face MTM consultations at their local pharmacies.

Lock-in program

Humana’s lock-in program is designed to care for your safety in the event there is an excessive use of prescription drugs. If you qualify for the program, we will work with you and your provider to have your prescriptions transferred to one pharmacy.
