Generics First - A Step Therapy Program
effective 10/1/13
Do you know that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires generic drugs to have the same strength and purity as brand-name drugs? Generic drugs can be just as effective as their brand-name counterparts at a fraction of the price, so why would you spend more than you have to on your prescription medications? Choose generics and save. Your prescription drug plan is designed to save you money. Before you use one of the brand-name drugs listed here, you will first need to try a similar, alternative medication. In most cases, this will be a generic drug. Generics are approved by the FDA as safe and effective but will cost you less. Example: Before you can fill a new prescription for the brand-name drug Cymbalta, you will need to try one of the generic alternatives first – bupropion, fluoxetine, paroxetine, sertraline or venlafaxine. It’s important that you share this list with your doctor to help coordinate your medication needs. This list shows you which brand-name drugs are affected, as well as the recommended alternatives. This list represents prescription drugs in our standard Generics First - Step Therapy Program. Your benefits may be different. If you have any questions about this list, call the Customer Service number on the back of your BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee member ID card. Before you take one
