Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee

P&T Committee  
The Pharmacy and Therapeutics (P&T) Committee selects drugs considered to be the top choices based on their safety, effectiveness and value for our Drug List/Formulary.  
The P&T Committee is an independent group that includes practicing doctors, pharmacists and other health care professionals responsible for the research and decisions surrounding our Drug List/Formulary. This group meets regularly to review new and existing drugs, and to choose the top medications for our Drug List/Formulary. 
The P&T Committee also helps improve customer health through programs like drug utilization review, promoting medication safety and encouraging compliance.  
Outcomes Based Formulary 
We offer an Outcomes Based Formulary. That means we use a balanced approach to drug list/formulary management, based on a combination of research, clinical guidelines and member experience. The latest developments and submission guidelines from around the world are considered when developing and maintaining the Drug List/Formulary.
