2021 PROVIDENCE FORMULARY P
Providence Health Plan is pleased to provide plan members with a comprehensive prescription drug formulary designed to promote safe, effective and affordable drug therapy. We 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.
COVID-19Coronavirus disease 2019 – also known as COVID19 – is a highly contagious respiratory virus that has caused a global pandemic due to its ability to spread quickly, even by people that do not have any symptoms of the disease. While many patients experience mild symptoms, the virus can cause very severe disease and death in some patients.
In December 2020, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of COVID-19 vaccines under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to help stop the spread of the disease. This vaccine will be covered in full (no out-of-pocket costs). Please note that vaccine administration will not be available for everyone right away; the government will be limiting initial vaccinations to those at highest risk (such as front-line healthcare workers, long-term care residents, and elderly patients).
