Preferred Product Program

The Preferred Product Program allows Funds beneficiaries to obtain “preferred” medication products from select classes. “Non-preferred” products may be obtained for an additional charge plus the copayment.


If a beneficiary cannot take a preferred product due to a specific medical reason(s), their doctor should fax a letter of medical necessity to 1-888-487-9257 to provide medical information as to why the preferred medication should not be dispensed.  If approved, the beneficiary will be authorized to receive a “non-preferred” product at the standard copayment. Please see link below.​
