SilverSummit Healthplan covers certain prescription drugs and over-the-counter drugs when prescribed by a SilverSummit Healthplan provider. The pharmacy program does not cover all drugs. Some require prior authorization. Some drugs have limitations on age, dosage or maximum quantities.

The Preferred Drug List (PDL) is the list of drugs covered by SilverSummit Healthplan. SilverSummit Healthplan 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. SilverSummit Healthplan's PDL is continually evaluated by the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee to promote the appropriate and cost-effective use of medications.

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

If you are unsure whether your current medication is a specialty drug, please review our Specialty Pharmacy Program. It has a list of specialty drugs, plus more information about them.

Your specialty pharmacy is AcariaHealth. They can be reached at 1-800-511-5144.

You can have your prescriptions filled at a network pharmacy. At the pharmacy, you will need to give the pharmacist your prescription and your SilverSummit Healthplan ID Card. If you need help finding a pharmacy near you, call us or check online.

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.
