United Healthcare formularies are available through the company's website. Site visitors must enter their ZIP code and select a plan that covers prescription benefits in order to view a complete list of coverage options available. The site also offers a search tool for looking up drug names and cost information.
Plan coverage varies by state, thus drugs included in one state may not be on the formulary in another. Additionally, formularies may change during the plan year. United Healthcare's site offers instructions on how to transition a prescription drug that does not have coverage on the participant's plan, as well as formulary changes, deletions, additions and prior authorization criteria. United Healthcare posts notice of formulary changes 60 days in advance for drugs covered by Medicare Part D.
