Is My Drug Covered?

To see the drugs covered by your plan:

Log in

If you get health insurance through your employer, your drug list is either RxCore or RxSelect. The name of your prescription drug list is shown in your SelectHealth account under SelectHealth and Rx Claims, and it's also listed on your ID card.


RxCore is our value-based formulary designed to provide savings. A formulary is a list of drugs covered by your plan. If you’re considering an Individual and Family plan, search the 5-Tier RxCore drug list to find out more about how your medications will be covered. Questions? Call us!

You can also see an estimate of how much a drug will cost with the Drug Lookup tool, but keep in mind that your benefits may differ from what is shown.


How Can I Get My Drug Covered?

There may be drugs that aren’t on your prescription drug list or that have special requirements, such as preauthorization or step therapy, you need to meet before they are covered. If you aren't sure why a drug wasn't covered, our Pharmacy team can help. Call 800-538-5038.

Drugs with Special Requirements

Some drugs have special requirements that must be met before SelectHealth will cover them.

Step Therapy drugs require your provider to first prescribe alternative options that are generally more cost effective without compromising quality. Step therapy may be waived if determined to be medically necessary.

Preauthorization is required for certain drugs. This process must be completed by your doctor before you fill your prescription.

If your physician believes that you require a medication that is not on your formulary, normally requires step therapy, or exceeds a quantity limit, he or she may request an exception through the preauthorization process or the drug exception process.

Use the links below to see drugs with special requirements on your formulary (the drugs covered by your plan). The name of your formulary is included on your ID card.




Drug Exceptions

If you need a prescription for a medication that is normally not covered under your plan, you may ask for an exception to your plan’s prescription drug coverage. Obtaining an exception decision takes between 24 (emergent) and 72 hours (standard) . Many requests can be handled over the phone by calling 800-538-5038, or by filling out the Exception Request Form. Some requests may need to be submitted by your physician. If the exception is denied, you have the right to appeal that decision as with any other denial.
