All DrFirst users have formulary checking enabled. Formulary information in DrFirst is obtained from SureScripts.
|SureScripts provides formulary information from health plans, pharmacy benefit managers, and payers such as Blue Cross, Anthem, MAMSI, etc. SureScripts may not provide eligibility for all government-funded formularies such as medicaid or some small regional payers.
- When you select a patient, DrFirst will automatically search for his or her eligibility using the patient's first and last name, ZIP code, and DOB.
- If you try to prescribe a medication that is not covered, or has a higher co-pay, you will receive formulary alert in the system.
- The user can override the alert, or select from the list of alternatives and prescribe a medication that may have lower co-pay.
