Cigna?s Medicare Part D formulary is a list of the prescription drugs that are covered for people on Medicare, according to Cigna-Healthspring. The complete formulary is available on the official Cigna-Healthspring website.
The drug list, which is compiled with the help of a team of health care professionals, consists of prescriptions believed to be essential to an effective treatment program, according to Cigna-Healthspring. Drugs on the formulary are generally covered when deemed medically necessary, the prescription is filled through a pharmacy in the network, and other coverage rules are followed. The formulary includes both brand-name drugs and generic drugs.
Medicare officially approves the drug list annually and approves any subsequent changes requested during the year, notes Cigna-Healthspring.
