Pharmacy Coverage

Our members can count on us for prescription drug coverage. They get all the same drugs that Medical Assistance covers, plus some over-the-counter drugs and vitamins with a prescription. Some medications may require a copayment and, depending on your category of aid, limits may apply.


Pharmacy Resources for Members

The UPMC for You Pharmacy Formulary (Non-PDL) (Formulario de Farmacia (Lista de Medicamentos No Preferidos PDL) de UPMC for You) is a list of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved medications. This list was developed by UPMC for You doctors and pharmacists and includes the most commonly used drugs. Medications on the formulary (drug list) that are prescribed by a doctor are paid for by UPMC for You. The list does not include every medication a doctor might prescribe. The drugs on the formulary have been selected because they are safe, work well, and cost less than other drugs that have the same level of effectiveness. You can also search for covered drugs with our online searchable formulary.
