The formulary is a list of drugs chosen by Aetna Better Health of Maryland and a team of doctors and pharmacists. Drugs on this list are generally covered under the plan as long as they are medically necessary. Members must fill their prescriptions at an Aetna Better Health of Maryland network pharmacy and follow other plan rules.

Please review the formulary for any restrictions or recommendations regarding prescription drugs before prescribing a medication to an Aetna Better Health of Maryland patient.

You can download the formulary or you can also use the searchable formulary. Both of these resources contain the most up to date listing of step therapy requirements and quantity limits. You can also view a list of this month's formulary updates.

Check back frequently as the formulary, prior authorization guidelines, and prior authorization forms are updated regularly.
