Caremark Performance Drug List

Certain groups use these lists instead of the Preferred Drug List. If you are unsure which lists apply to you, please contact your Human Resources department.

Performance Drug List

The Performance Drug List includes many of the drugs your plan covers. The drugs on this list are generic or preferred brands to treat many common conditions. If your drug is not on this list, review the Formulary Removals list to ensure your drug is not excluded. If a brand drug is not on either list, it is probably a non-preferred brand drug.
