Drug Search


This drug search enables you to see if your prescription drug is a covered drug, if your prescription is a generic or brand name drug, and if any special restrictions apply. This drug list is reviewed at least once per month and was last updated on 3/6/2017.

Important Information


PacificSource Medicare plans cover both brand name drugs and generic drugs. Generic drugs have the same active ingredient formula as a brand name drug. Generic drugs usually cost less than brand name drugs and are rated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be as safe and effective as brand name drugs.

Your Rights


You and your doctor have the right to request an exception to the plan’s formulary or coverage criteria. If your drug is not included in this drug search, you should first contact Customer Service and confirm that your drug is not covered. If you learn that your PacificSource Medicare plan does not cover your drug, you have two options:

  1. You can ask Customer Service for a list of similar drugs that are covered by PacificSource Medicare. When you receive the list, show it to your doctor and ask him or her to prescribe a similar drug that is covered by PacificSource Medicare.
  2. If you would like to request an exception, please contact the PacificSource Medicare Customer Service Department.
