The Senior Care Plus Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee consists of healthcare professionals with expertise in prescription medications and other therapies. The P&T committee meets periodically to review our formulary and approve certain Formulary changes. Prior to removing a covered Part D drug from our formulary, or making any change in the preferred or tiered cost-sharing status of a covered Part D drug, Senior Care Plus must either: Provide direct written notice to affected enrollees at least 60 days prior to the date the change becomes effective; or at the time an affected enrollee requests a refill of the Part D drug, provide such enrollee with a 60 day supply of the Part D drug under the same terms as previously allowed and written notice of the formulary change.
Listing of formulary changes since the beginning of the year are provided in the
