Quartz Pharmacy Program
Covered Drugs – Illinois Standard Choice Formulary
The information below will help you to identify which formulary is applicable to you. However, the best way to access the correct formulary is through MyChart or by entering your member number or group number on the Formulary Lookup.
Standard Choice Formularies
For members whose pharmacy benefits are covered by a fixed copay on a three- or four-tier plan.
The formulary is the list of medications covered by Quartz through the prescription drug benefit. Brand versions or reference biologics are removed from the formulary when FDA-approved generics and biosimilars are available unless otherwise designated by the Pharmacy & Therapeutics Committee.
Certain drugs on the formulary may not be covered by your specific plan. Some plans cover drugs not listed on the formulary. The differences are based on what type of plan you have and/or:
- If you have employer-based or individual coverage through Quartz
- What state you live in or your employer is based in
- If your benefit plan meets the requirements of the Affordable Care Act
This means that even though a drug is listed on this formulary, it may not be covered by your specific benefit plan. Please see your Quartz Prescription Drug Benefit Rider or contact Quartz Customer Service at (800) 362-3310 to verify your coverage.
