Drug Formulary

VHP uses a drug formulary (list of covered drugs). Please refer to the applicable VHP formulary. The Valley Health Plan Drug Formulary is the list of prescription drugs that have been reviewed and selected by VHP Plan Providers on the VHP Pharmacy and Therapeutic Committee in accordance with professionally-recognized medical standards for their medical, safety, and cost-effectiveness. The Formulary includes both brand name and generic drugs, all of which are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). A generic drug is identical -- or bioequivalent -- to a brand name drug in dosage form, safety, strength, route of administration, quality, performance characteristics, and intended use.

The Formulary is updated quarterly after each VHP Pharmacy & Therapeutics (P&T) Committee meeting. The committee members are actively practicing physicians, pharmacists, nurse practitioner(s), and nurse(s) from various specialties. The P&T Committee frequently consults with other physician subject matter experts to provide additional input to the Committee. The formulary is updated after every P&T committee meeting and posted on the website.
