Pharmacy

Banner – University Health Plans (B – UHP) is focused on ensuring that our members have access to high-quality, affordable drug therapy. Our health plan covers prescription medications based on your formulary. A formulary is a list of drugs that are covered by your plan, and it is updated periodically. Check below to review the medications that are available on your formulary. 

If you would like to request coverage for a state or federally-reimbursable medication that is not included on this list, complete a Pharmacy Prior Authorization Form and submit it to B – UHP for review. You may also request a prior authorization electronically using CoverMyMeds


Medicare

Banner – University Care Advantage (B – UCA) updates drug formulary files monthly, which includes the Comprehensive Drug Formulary, Prior Authorization Criteria, Step Therapy Criteria, and Future Formulary Changes.    

Some prescriptions require prior authorization from B – UCA before they can be filled. Requests for medications requiring Prior Authorization will be reviewed based on the Prior Authorization Guidelines and Criteria for that medication.


Medicaid

Banner – University Family Care/ACC (B – UFC/ACC) and Banner – University Family Care/Arizona Long Term Care System (B – UFC/ALTCS) provide updates to the drug lists periodically.
