Blue Cross of Idaho Pharmacy & Therapeutics Committee Prescription Drug Position Statements
The Blue Cross of Idaho Pharmacy & Therapeutics Committee is an independent group of board certified practicing doctors and pharmacists from throughout Idaho. This group meets regularly to evaluate the most current scientific evidence involving existing and new medications and determines the medication’s placement on Blue Cross of Idaho’s Drug Formulary list*. The committee excludes some drugs from the drug formulary after an evidence-based review of the available clinical study data. Blue Cross of Idaho developed the prescription drug position statements to support the Pharmacy & Therapeutics Committee’s decisions. Please note that Blue Cross of Idaho may not cover certain drugs in various therapeutic categories.
