Pharmacy Management

McLaren Health Advantage provides pharmacy coverage collaboratively with our pharmacy benefits manager (PBM). There are many benefits for both McLaren Health Advantage and the prescribing physician in using a PBM, such as alerting the pharmacist filling the prescription of:

  • Drug to drug interactions
  • Therapeutic duplication
  • Minimum & maximum dosages
  • Early refills
  • What drugs are on the formulary
  • If the drug being prescribed has a generic brand

McLaren Health Advantage provides different levels of co-payments for generic vs. brand drugs and the member’s ID card lists the co-pay amount.

The main tool utilized to manage the pharmacy benefit is the Formulary. Please click on the side bar for the Formulary and other tools for your use.
