Definition: List of preferred prescription drugs in which different drugs have different co-pays, according to the policies of Drug Plans or Prescription Drug Benefits.

Each drug is assigned to a specific 'tier' within the formulary.

The most cost-effective drugs, often generic drugs, belong to the most preferred tier and typically have the lowest co-pay, whereas the least cost effective drugs belong to the least preferred tier and have the highest co-pay.

Tiered formularies encourage consumers to be cost-conscious in choosing their medications, and reward consumers for choosing generic medications by requiring lower co-pay.

Tiered formularies may also provide some level of coverage for prescriptions that might not otherwise be covered.

H1N1 flu could fill hospital beds


Trust for America's Health (TFAH) Report

"African-Americans and Hispanics are more likely to have severe cases of H1N1 because they suffer from more underlying chronic conditions, like asthma and diabetes, at the same time many significant gaps remain in systems for reaching minority communities.

For instance, emergency preparedness information is often disseminated on the Internet, which many people do not have access to, and there is limited availability of non-English information."

(From the TFAH Report)
