How to Read a Drug List
A drug list, also called a formulary, is a catalog of drugs that are approved by the Food and Drug Administration and covered by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network. You can use drug lists to see if your health plan covers your prescription medication.

Have your insurance card on hand so you can make sure you’re looking at the right plan. If you have a group plan, check with your provider.

Not every insurance plan has the same drug list, but there are a few things you should look for no matter which drug list applies to your plan.
