Formulary Exceptions and Coverage Determinations

If a drug is not covered in the way you would like it to be covered, you can ask the plan to make an “exception” by submitting a formulary exception form, called a Coverage Determination Request Form.  An exception is a type of coverage decision.  Similar to other types of coverage decisions, if we turn down your request for an exception, you can appeal our decision.
