Which Drugs are covered?
The Preferred Drug List (PDL) is the list of drugs covered by Western Sky Community Care. Western Sky Community Care works with providers and pharmacists to ensure that medications used to treat a variety of conditions and diseases are covered. The PDL applies to drugs you receive at retail pharmacies or mail order. Western Sky Community Care's PDL is continually evaluated by the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee to promote the appropriate and cost-effective use of medications.
To view the Preferred Drug List, visit the Manuals and Forms page.

A specialty drug is a prescription drug that requires special handling, administration or monitoring. These are usually only ordered through a specialty pharmacy.

Can I Get a Prescription with More Than a 30-day Supply?
Certain drugs are considered maintenance medications because they are used to treat long-term conditions or illnesses. If the drug you take is part of the Maintenance Drug Program, you may receive up to 100-day supply at specific retail pharmacies.
Members can also obtain a 100-day supply (3-month supply) of maintenance medications filled at one time. It’s important to know that not all of our pharmacies are able to fill a 100-day supply, so please check this list of participating pharmacies prior to taking your 3-month prescription to them.
