What is a formulary?
A formulary is a list of drugs covered by a health plan. The Peoples Health formulary covers drugs that are selected by Peoples Health in consultation with a team of healthcare providers and that represent the prescription therapies believed to be a necessary part of a quality treatment program.
Our “abridged formulary” is a partial listing of some of the drugs covered by Peoples Health.
Our “comprehensive formulary” is a complete listing of all of the drugs covered by Peoples Health. Our comprehensive formulary is available through this online search. You can also find a PDF of our comprehensive formulary in the sidebar to your left.
Our formulary may change during the year. Please refer to your plan Evidence of Coverage for details on how we will cover drugs that are affected by a formulary change. If Peoples Health does not cover your drug, you can ask us to make an exception and cover your drug. Click here for information on how to request an exception (which is a type of coverage determination).
For the drugs on our formulary, Peoples Health pays for the majority of the drug's costs, and you pay a copay or a coinsurance amount for the rest of the cost. Your copay and coinsurance amounts are listed in your plan Evidence of Coverage.
Peoples Health covers both brand drugs and generic drugs. Generic drugs have the same active-ingredient formula as a brand drug. Generic drugs usually cost less than brand drugs and are rated by the Food and Drug Administration to be as safe and effective as brand drugs.

This information is not a complete description of benefits. Contact the plan for more information. Limitations, copayments, and restrictions may apply. Benefits, premiums, and copayments or coinsurance may change on January 1 of each year. The formulary, pharmacy network, and provider network may change at any time. You will receive notice when necessary. You must continue to pay your Medicare Part B premium. Medicare evaluates plans based on a 5-star rating system. Peoples Health is rated 4 out of 5 stars for 2017. Star Ratings are calculated each year and may change from one year to the next. The “highest rated” designation is based on the Medicare star ratings for HMOs listed under “Medicare Health Plans in Louisiana” in the CMS publication “Medicare & You 2017.” There may be other plans with enrollment limitations (e.g., special needs plans or employer group plans) with equivalent ratings.
Peoples Health Network is the administrator for Peoples Health, Inc.
Peoples Health is a Medicare Advantage organization with a Medicare contract to offer HMO plans. Enrollment depends on annual Medicare contract renewal.
