Updates for Plan Year 2019!

Sutter Health Plus is changing the Pharmacy Benefit Manager (PBM) to Express Scripts as of January 1, 2019.  The drug formulary still includes all generic drugs and many preferred brands, and uses the same four-tier design we currently have. Some drugs will change tiers and will have new prior authorization requirements. Current Sutter Health Plus members will be mailed information about the plan change during November, directly from SHP.
