About the Program

The Quartz Pharmacy Program is based on local medical practice patterns and managed following NCQA best practices, this program helps provide effective medication management for patients.

The Prescription Drug Benefit Brochure provides detailed information about Quartz’s pharmacy benefits.

Patient Medication Costs

You can determine the copay level (tier) for your patient’s medications by reviewing Quartz’s Drug Formulary. The formulary lists medications by drug class according to the copay tier.

Quartz populates formulary information with the Surescripts hub for use in e-prescribing applications. Surescripts will display the copay tier of the medication.

Certain medications require prior authorization before coverage is provided.
