Health Partners Medicare has a comprehensive formulary, which is a complete list of covered, commonly prescribed prescription drugs. These drugs are selected by a team of health care providers, including doctors and pharmacists, on the basis of their medical advantage, safety, ease of use and cost.
Our formulary contains brand name drugs and generic drugs. It usually does not include a brand name drug when the same medicine comes as a generic. This may affect which medications you get when using your Health Partners Medicare prescription benefit.
Also, manufacturers that have not contracted with the government’s rebate program are excluded from our formulary.

About Formulary Changes
The formulary may change at any time. You will receive notice when necessary. If you need additional help or information, please call Member Relations at 1-866-901-8000 (TTY 1-877-454-8477). If you would like a formulary mailed to you, call us or send us a request.
Our formulary is reviewed on a regular basis and there may be changes to it throughout the year. We may add or remove drugs from the formulary, make quantity limits or other restrictions. For the Prime and Simple plans, we may also change a drug’s cost-sharing tier.
Prior Authorization/Formulary Exceptions
There may be occasions when your doctor would like you to have a drug that is not listed in our formulary. In these instances, the non-formulary medication may be requested through a Prior Authorization/Formulary Exception.
