What Is WellCare Medicare Formulary?

WellCare Medicare formulary is a comprehensive document that lists all of the medically necessary drugs WellCare covers and Medicare and Medicaid require, according to WellCare. The formulary can change throughout each plan year. Current and past WellCare formularies are available online for viewing and printing.

Health care providers work with WellCare to develop formularies that meet plan participants' needs, according to WellCare. Plan providers typically cover drugs listed in their formularies when patients follow plan rules, such as using a WellCare network pharmacy to fill their drug prescriptions. Notations on formularies indicate special conditions, such as drugs that require a doctor's preauthorization, and limits that WellCare may impose on quantities of certain covered drugs.
