Prescription drug tiers

  • Tier 1 (mostly generics) contain the same active ingredients as their brand-name equivalents and meet the same federal standards for safety but typically cost significantly less

  • Tier 2 (formulary) brand-name medications that are favored by a prescription plan based on drug effectiveness and cost
  • Tier 3 (nonformulary) brand-name medications that are not on a prescription plan's favored list (or formulary) based on drug effectiveness and cost. They may still be covered but may require prior authorization and cost more

Mail order

Regular medications to treat chronic conditions — such as allergy, high blood pressure, or diabetes can take advantage of the convenience and cost savings of using the mail order program or receive a three-month supply through a local CVS retail pharmacy
