News & Updates
Anthem believes that a sound clinical formulary strategy is instrumental to improving members’ health while controlling pharmacy costs, and making sure that members have access to the medications they need.
Through their quarterly formulary review process, Anthem regularly makes additions, deletions and benefit tier changes to their drug lists that maintain the highest level of clinical integrity while delivering cost savings to their members. Medications may move to a higher tier or be removed from Anthem's drug lists twice a year. Anthem's next update for 2017 is coming soon, and the updated drugs lists will be available as of October 1.
In the coming weeks, Anthem will reach out to members who may be impacted by the October drug list changes. Members who currently take a medication that is removed from their drug list will have a grace period until November 15.
