Phoenix Health Plan's Drug Formulary was created to ensure safe, appropriate and cost-effective utilization of medications. With a primary consideration to provide comprehensive drug coverage for patients, the Formulary was evaluated in all therapeutic categories and contains those agents that offer the greatest value in each class.
Provider's utilization of Phoenix Health Plan's Drug Formulary ensures our member's pharmaceutical needs are met in a high quality, cost-effective manner. Formulary development and maintenance is a dynamic process and is subject to periodic changes.
