A Formulary is a list of prescription drugs that are available through health plans. In most plans, the formulary is developed by a pharmacy and therapeutics committee composed of pharmacists and physicians from various medical specialties. The committee reviews new and existing medications and selects drugs to be included in the health plan's..
