Drug Categories

Generic - medications with the same active ingredients and manufactured according to the same strict federal regulations as their brand-name counterparts.

Brand-Name - a drug patented by the manufacturer and sold by its brand name.

Preferred  - generic and brand-name drugs that are preferred by your plan because they help to control rising prescription drug costs.

Non-preferred - generic and brand-name drugs that are not included on your plan's preferred list. They may be covered, but you may be required to pay a higher cost.

Specialty - typically high cost drugs that are injected or infused in the treatment of acute or chronic diseases. Specialty Drugs often require special handling such as temperature-controlled packaging and expedited delivery. Most Specialty Drugs require preauthorization to be considered Medically Necessary.
