The IBC Drug Formulary

The IBC Drug Formulary is a list of FDA-approved drugs we cover for our Keystone 65 HMO, Personal Choice 65 PPO, and Select Option PDP Medicare plans. Our Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee has carefully chosen these drugs for their medical effectiveness and value.

We may periodically add or remove covered drugs, change coverage limitations on certain drugs, or change how much you pay for a drug.

Find a Drug on the Formulary

Search the IBC Drug Formulary alphabetically by drug name or by drug class. You can also check the formulary for drugs recently added to or removed from the formulary. You can contact us for the most recent list of drugs..

See Exceptions and Appeals to learn how to obtain an exception to the plan’s formulary. This is not a complete list of all formulary alternatives covered by the Part D sponsor for the drug you have selected.

IBC Formulary Changes
We regularly review the formulary to ensure its continued effectiveness. The formulary may change during the year. We may remove drugs from the formulary, or add prior authorizations, quantity limits, restrictions on a drug, or move a drug to a higher cost-sharing tier.

If a prescription you’re taking is affected by a formulary change, we will notify you, in writing, at least 60 days before the date it takes effect.

If we don’t notify you in advance of the change, you will get a 60-day supply of the drug when you request a refill of the drug.

In case of a market recall, we will not give you 60 days’ notice before removing the drug. Instead, we will remove the drug from our formulary immediately and notify members about the change as soon as possible.
