If your company offers an Anthem medical plan that complies with health care reform law, you may notice that the name of the plan’s drug list (also called a formulary) has changed. The new name is the Traditional Open Drug List. The medications included on the drug list have not changed.
The goal of the list is to provide access to drugs and therapies with clinical evidence to improve the health of Anthem members, while keeping health care affordable.
As a reminder, Anthem’s Drug Search Tool lets members see results specific to their plan’s drug list, after they’ve logged into their member website. There’s no need for them to identify or select their specific drug list by name.
For your convenience, Anthem has prepared these talking points that you can send to your employees to help them know more about the drug list.
Note: If your plan uses our Select Drug List, this change does not impact you.
