Prescription Drug Guides

Minnesota’s nonprofit health plans strive to provide consumers with the most effective, affordable and highest quality prescription drugs available. The list of prescription drugs covered through your health plan is called a formulary.

In order to ensure the most up-to-date information is available to members who use and providers who prescribe medications, MCHP links directly to health plans’ formularies. The formularies are reviewed at least quarterly and changes may be made at that time. Direct links to the formulary for MCHP member organizations are listed below.
