Columbia Pacific pays for many prescription drugs.
Columbia Pacific pays for many prescription drugs. The ones we cover are on a drug list called a “formulary.” When your provider prescribes a medicine, ask if it’s on the covered drug list. The list is a directory of medications approved for Columbia Pacific CCO members. It explains if there are special rules about the drug. The list is updated often, so if we remove or change a medication that you take, you’ll be notified in advance. To download and view the drug list, click the link below.
OHP Prior Authorization Use criteria (updated 8/2023)
Search for a drug in one of the following ways:
- Find the drug listed in the formulary/PDF index.
- In the PDF file, enter the drug name into the search box located in the menu.
- Call Customer Service for assistance in finding a drug.
If you want us to send you a printed copy of this formulary, please contact Customer Service. There is no charge, and you’ll receive it within five business days.
If you urgently need a drug that’s not on our formulary, call Customer Service. You, your provider or your pharmacist can ask for an emergency supply. The maximum emergency supply is 72 hours’ worth.
To fill a prescription, go to any pharmacy in our network. You’ll have lots of choices. Our network includes most large pharmacy chains and many smaller drug stores.
You can have your drugs delivered directly to your door with one of our mail order pharmacies listed below. Click on the name of the pharmacy to open the form you'll need to fill out and send in.
It can be a real challenge keeping up with lots of prescriptions all at once. More and more people have ten, a dozen, 20 or more. It can be hard to keep them all straight, and even harder to tell your doctor when there’s something about your medications that you don’t like. CareOregon’s My Easy Drug System (MEDS) is a tested way to make sure your medications are working as a positive part of your health care plan.
The MEDS Chart helps you remember why you’re taking a medication, and let others know how you feel it’s working for you:
Ask for your MEDS Chart today!
Any Columbia Pacific member can request a MEDS Chart that shows all your medications. The MEDS Chart can help you explain to doctors or caregivers if you have a medication side effect you don’t like or if you are concerned about a medication not working for you. Letting your doctor, pharmacist or caregiver know how you feel about your medications can help them find choices for you that work better and may improve your health.
