CareMore Health Plan covers both brand name drugs and generic drugs. Generic drugs have the same active ingredient formula as a brand name drug. Generic drugs usually cost less than brand name drugs and are rated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be as safe and effective as brand name drugs. The formulary may change during the year.
From time to time, there may be a change in tiered costs and/or removal made in the formulary. CareMore will post a 60-day advance notice of any changes to our formulary below.
CareMore Health Plan has contracts with pharmacies that equal or exceed CMS requirements for pharmacy access in your area with over 66,709 pharmacies in our network.

Please click below for the Prior Authorization Criteria document
For certain drugs, you or your provider need to get approval from the plan before we will agree to cover the drug for you. This is called "prior authorization". Sometimes the requirement for getting approval in advance helps guide appropriate use of certain drugs.
