What is the UMP Preferred Drug List?

The UMP Preferred Drug List (PDL) offers a choice of prescription drugs that are safe and effective. The list also provides value. By choosing drugs on this list you will save money.

How does the PDL work?

The PDL classifies prescription drugs into tiers. The amount you pay for your prescription drug depends on its tier, the pharmacy you use, and your plan benefits. For all plans, covered preventive drugs are paid at 100 percent and are not subject to the deductible.

Note: Tiers do not apply to UMP CDHP or UMP High Deductible. For UMP CDHP and UMP High Deductible, prescription drugs in the PDL are covered at 15 percent coinsurance after the deductible is met.

Please see your UMP certificate of coverage for plan details and specific prescription drug information.

Who decides which prescription drugs are on the PDL?

Two organizations determine which drugs are on the PDL. The Washington State Pharmacy and Therapeutics (P&T) Committee (an independent group of doctors and pharmacists) and Washington State Prescription Services (WSRxS) recommend safe and effective drugs for the PDL. WSRxS determines which of these drugs are cost effective.

Does the PDL contain pricing information?

The PDL contains information you need to find drug pricing, but you will need to access UMP’s Prescription Price Check Tool to determine your estimated cost based on the specifics of your plan and coverage.
