The formulary below lists the drugs covered by Aetna Better Health of Ohio Dual Preferred (HMO Plan) Plan. A formulary is just another name for a prescription drug list. We consulted with a team of health care providers to develop this list. It includes prescriptions we believe are needed in a quality treatment program.

We generally cover the drugs in our formulary as long as:

‒        The drug is needed to treat an illness or injury

‒        Your prescription is filled at a pharmacy in our network

‒        You follow any other plan rules that apply

2019 Formulary Change Notice

Sometimes you (or your doctor) need to get prior authorization for certain drugs. This means that you need to get approval from the plan before you fill these prescriptions. If you don’t, Aetna Better Health of Ohio Dual Preferred (HMO Plan) Plan may not cover the drug.

2019 Prior Authorization Criteria

Sometimes we need you to try certain drugs first to treat your medical condition before we will cover another drug for that condition. For example, if Drug A and Drug B both treat your medical condition, Aetna Better Health of Ohio Dual Preferred (HMO Plan) Plan may not cover Drug B unless you try Drug A first. If Drug A doesn’t work, Aetna Better Health of Ohio Dual Preferred (HMO Plan) Plan then covers Drug B.
