The Prescription Drug List is developed and maintained by the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City. The committee is composed of practicing physicians and pharmacists within the Kansas City area. Quarterly meetings are held to evaluate new drug therapies and review drug utilization issues.
Medications are evaluated on the basis of safety, effectiveness, adverse events, proven advantages over existing agents and cost. All medications are assigned to one of three copay levels: first tier, second tier and third tier. Any new branded medication will automatically be assigned to the highest copay tier until reviewed by the committee.
While extensive, this is not an exhaustive list of all available medications and this list is subject to change. If you have questions, please contact the Clinical Pharmacy Unit of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City by clicking the Contact Us link at the bottom of this page.
