Preferred Drug List
Effective January 1, 2015
Formulary | Preferred Drug List
What is the Mercy Care Plan Preferred Drug List?
A Preferred Drug List is a list of drugs chosen by Mercy Care Plan and a team of doctors and
pharmacists. Mercy Care Plan will generally cover drugs listed in our Preferred Drug List as
long as they are medically necessary. Prescriptions must also be filled at a Mercy Care Plan
network pharmacy, and other Plan rules must be followed.
The Preferred Drug List begins on page 8. It gives you information about the drugs covered by
Mercy Care Plan. The first column of the chart lists the drug that is covered by the plan. Brand
name drugs are capitalized (e.g., AMOXIL). Generic drugs are listed in lower case italics
(e.g., amoxicillin). The second column serves as a reference for providing the brand name of
the drug when a generic is covered by the plan. The third column lists any requirements for the
drug such as prior authorization (PA), quantity limits (QLL), step therapy (ST), or if the
medication is covered for only the developmentally disabled (DD) or Arizona Long Term Care
System (ALTCS) members. Injectable medications require prior authorization unless
otherwise noted on the Preferred Drug List.
Can the Preferred Drug List change?
Yes, Mercy Care Plan may add or take off drugs during the year. To get the latest information
about covered drugs, go to our Web site at www.MercyCarePlan.com or call Member Services
at (602) 263-3000 or (800) 624-3879.
If we take a drug off the Preferred Drug List or add restrictions to it, we will let you know at
least 60 days before. Or, if you request a refill and it is no longer covered, you will get a 60-day
supply of the drug until your doctor can write you a new prescription. Also, if the Food and
Drug Administration says a drug on our Preferred Drug List is unsafe or the drug’s maker takes
the drug off the market, we will take the drug off our Preferred Drug List right away and let
members who take the drug know.
How do I use the Preferred Drug List?
The Preferred Drug List begins on page 8. Drugs are grouped depending on the type of
medical conditions they are used to treat. For example, drugs used to treat a heart condition
are listed under the category, “Cardiovascular Agents.” If you know what your drug is used for,
look for the category name in the list that begins on page 8. Then look under the category
name for your drug.
Are there any other restrictions on coverage?
Some drugs may have additional requirements or limits on coverage. These may include:

Formulary | Preferred Drug List

Prior Authorization: Mercy Care Plan may require prior authorization for certain drugs
on the Preferred Drug List. This means that your doctor will need to get approval from
us before you can fill some of your prescriptions. If approval isn’t given, Mercy Care
Plan will not cover the drug.

Quantity Limits: For certain drugs, Mercy Care Plan limits the amount of the drug it will
cover. For example, we provide 60 pills in 30 days per prescription for Lisinopril 40 mg.
Please refer to the quantity limit levels list at the end of this document.

Step Therapy: In some cases, Mercy Care Plan requires you to try certain drugs first to
treat your medical condition before we will cover another drug for that same condition.
For example, if Drug A and Drug B both treat your medical condition, Mercy Care Plan
may not cover Drug B unless you try Drug A first. If Drug A does not work for you, we
will then cover Drug B.
You can find out if your drug has any additional requirements or limits by looking in the second
column of the list.
Key
Subject to non-formulary status when generic is available throughout the year.
INJ –Indicates that the drug is available in injectable form only
QLL – Quantity Limit Levels apply
PA – Prior Authorization required
STEP – Step Therapy
What if my drug is not on the Preferred Drug List?
If your drug is not on this Preferred Drug List, you should first call your doctor and ask if your
drug is covered. If we do not cover it, you have two options:


Ask your doctor to prescribe a similar drug that is covered.
Your doctor can ask Mercy Care Plan to make an exception and cover your drug
through the prior authorization process.
What are generic drugs?
Mercy Care Plan covers both brand name and generic drugs. Generic drugs usually cost less
and are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Effective January 1, 2015

Generic drugs are listed in lower-case (e.g., amoxicillin). Brand name drugs are capitalized
(e.g., AMOXIL).
Mail order pharmacy service
You can use our network mail order pharmacy service, CVS Caremark, to fill prescriptions for
what are called “maintenance” drugs. These are drugs that you take on a regular basis for a
chronic or long-term medical condition. These are the only drugs available through our mail
order service. For more information on mail order pharmacy services, call Member Services.

Formulary | Preferred Drug List
¿Qué es el listado de medicamentos preferidos de Mercy Care Plan?
Un enlistado de medicamentos preferidos es una lista de fármacos escogidos por Mercy Care
Plan y un equipo de médicos y farmacólogos. Por lo general, Mercy Care Plan cubrirá los
medicamentos enumerados en nuestro listado de medicamentos preferidos, siempre y cuando
sean médicamente necesarios. Además, los medicamentos recetados deben adquirirse en
una farmacia perteneciente a la red de Mercy Care Plan, y existen otras reglas del plan que
hay que respetar.
El listado de medicamentos preferidos comienza en la página 8. Le otorga información acerca
de los medicamentos cubiertos por el Mercy Care Plan. Si tiene algún inconveniente para
encontrar su medicamento en la lista, vea el índice, que comienza en la página 30.
La primera columna de la tabla ordena los medicamentos por nombre. Los medicamentos de
marca están con mayúscula (por ejemplo, AMOXIL). Los medicamentos genéricos están en
minúscula y cursiva (por ejemplo, amoxicilina). La segunda columna sirve como referencia
para proveer el nombre de marca cuando la medicina genérica es cubierta por el plan. La
tercera columna enlista cualquier requerimiento para el medicamento tal como autorización
previa (PA), cantidades limitadas (QLL), terapia por pasos (ST), o si el medicamento es
cubierto solo para incapacitados de desarrollo mental (DD) o miembros del Sistema de
Arizona de Cuidado a Largo Plazo (ALTCS).
La información incluida en la columna de Requisitos/Límites le indica si Mercy Care Plan tiene
algún requisito especial para su medicamento.
¿Es posible que se modifique el listado de medicamentos preferidos?
Sí, durante el año, Mercy Care Plan puede agregar algunos medicamentos a la lista o
eliminar otros. Para obtener información actualizada sobre los medicamentos cubiertos, visite
nuestro sitio Web en: www.MercyCarePlan.com o llame a Servicios a Miembros, al (602) 2633000 ó (800) 624-3879.
Si eliminamos un medicamento del listado de medicamentos preferidos o le agregamos
restricciones, se lo informaremos con al menos sesenta (60) días de anticipación. O, si usted
debe repetir un medicamento que ya no está cubierto, le entregaremos una provisión de dicho
medicamento que le alcanzará para 60 días, hasta que su médico pueda recetarle otro
diferente. Además, si la Food and Drug Administration (Administración de Alimentos y Drogas)
determina que un medicamento incluido en nuestro listado de medicamentos preferidos no es
seguro o que su fabricante lo ha retirado del mercado, lo eliminaremos de nuestro listado de
medicamentos preferidos de inmediato e informaremos al respecto a aquellos miembros que,
a nuestro entender, lo estén tomando.

Formulary | Preferred Drug List
¿Cómo utilizo el listado de medicamentos preferidos?
Hay dos formas de encontrar su medicamento:
Por enfermedad
El listado de medicamentos preferidos comienza en la página 8. Los medicamentos se
agrupan por tipo de enfermedades para las que están indicados. Por ejemplo, los
medicamentos empleados para el tratamiento de una cardiopatía se encuentran en la
categoría de “Agentes Cardiovasculares”. Si usted sabe para qué se usa el
medicamento, busque el nombre de la categoría en la lista que comienza en la página
5. Luego busque su medicamento bajo el nombre de la categoría.
Por orden alfabético
Si no está seguro por qué categoría buscar, debe ubicar su medicamento en el índice
que comienza en la página 30. Ésta es una lista alfabética de todos los medicamentos
incluidos en el listado de medicamentos preferidos. Se enumeran tanto los
medicamentos de marca como los genéricos. Ubique su medicamento. Junto a él,
encontrará el número de página donde podrá hallar más información. Diríjase allí y
localice su medicamento en la primera columna del listado.
¿Cuánto pagaré por los medicamentos cubiertos de Mercy Care Plan?
Usted no tiene que pagar los beneficios cubiertos por Mercy Care Plan, los cuales incluyen los
medicamentos.
¿Existe alguna otra restricción sobre la cobertura?
Algunos medicamentos pueden tener requisitos o límites adicionales sobre la cobertura. Ellos
pueden incluir:

Antes de la autorización: Mercy Care Plan puede requerir una autorización previa
para ciertos medicamentos que figuran en el listado de medicamentos preferidos. Esto
significa que su médico tendrá que conseguir nuestra aprobación antes de prescribirle
algunos de los medicamentos recetados. Si no se extiende esta aprobación, Mercy
Care Plan no cubrirá el medicamento.

Límites en cuanto a la cantidad: para ciertos medicamentos, Mercy Care Plan limita
la cantidad del mismo que cubrirá. Por ejemplo, entregamos 90 píldoras en 30 días por
receta para la Oxicodona.

Terapia escalonada: en algunos casos, Mercy Care Plan le exige que tome ciertos
medicamentos primero para tratar su afección médica, antes de cubrir otro que esté
Effective January 1, 2015
Page 5
Formulary | Preferred Drug List
indicado para la misma enfermedad. Por ejemplo, si el Medicamento A y el
Medicamento B sirven de igual modo como terapia para su afección médica, Mercy
Care Plan puede no cubrir el Medicamento B, a menos que usted haya probado
primero el Medicamento A. Si el Medicamento A no le da resultado, entonces
cubriremos el Medicamento B.
Podrá averiguar si su medicamento tiene o no algún requisito o límite adicional remitiéndose a
la segunda columna del listado.
Códigos
Sujeto a la categoría de no incluido en el formulario, cuando el genérico esta disponible
durante todo el aňo.
INJ –Indica que el medicamento esta disponible solamente en forma de inyección.
QLL – Se aplican niveles límite de cantidad
PA – Se requiere la autorización previa
ST –Terapia escalonada
¿Qué sucede si mi medicamento no se encuentra en el listado de medicamentos
preferidos?
Si su medicamento no figura en este listado de medicamentos preferidos, primero debe llamar
a su doctor y preguntar si su medicamento está cubierto. Si no lo está, tiene dos opciones:


Muéstresela al médico y pídale que le recete un medicamento similar que esté
cubierto.
Su médico puede solicitar al Mercy Care Plan que haga una excepción y cubra su
medicamento a través del proceso de autorización previa.
¿Qué son los medicamentos genéricos?
Mercy Care Plan cubre tanto los medicamentos genéricos como los de marca. Los
medicamentos genéricos por lo general cuestan menos y están aprobados por la Food and
Drug Administration (FDA).
Los medicamentos genéricos se enumeran en letra minúscula (por ejemplo, amoxicilina). Los
medicamentos de marca están en mayúscula (por ejemplo, AMOXIL).
Servicio de la farmacia del pedido por correo
