The MVP Prescription Drug Formulary
MVP's Prescription Drug Formulary contains a list of covered drugs. Members may benefit from selection of a formulary preferred product through lower copays. Use the covered drug search or formulary to find out if a particular drug is covered and at what tier.
Some medications require prior authorization or are subject to quantity limits or step therapy as described in MVP policies. Prior authorization forms, new and updated versions, can be found on the Provider Forms page.
Electronic version of the formulary
Through the ePocrates program, the MVP formulary information is downloaded over the Internet onto a handheld PDA (Palm or Pocket PC) device compatible with the system. You will then be able to view this information when needed. If you do not yet use ePocrates, you will need to register before you can access the formulary.
