Preferred Product Program


The Preferred Product Program allows Funds beneficiaries to obtain “preferred” medication products from seven (7)  classes of drugs for their standard co-payment. The seven classes include drugs for cholesterol, blood pressure, the stomach, sleeping, diabetes, bladder and allergies. "Non-preferred” products may be obtained for an additional charge plus the co-payment.
If a beneficiary cannot take a preferred product medication due to a specific medical reason, the beneficiary’s doctor should contact CVS/caremark Prior Authorization number at 1-800-294-5979 to provide medical information as to why the preferred product should not be dispensed. If approved, the beneficiary will be authorized to receive one of the “non-preferred” products at the standard co-payment.
