Prescription Medication Costs
Prescription medication prices are among the fastest growing costs in health care. Our programs and tools are designed to help you make informed decisions about your prescription medication choices and pharmacy product options. At UnitedHealthcare, we want to help you manage your prescription medication costs and get the most out of your pharmacy benefit. One tool you should be familiar with that can help you save money is the Prescription Drug List (PDL).*

Your Prescription Drug List (PDL)*
The PDL*  includes the most commonly used medications and groups them on tiers, representing the cost you pay. This cost is decided by your employer or health plan.  Tiering medications makes it easy for you to find other options that will help you save money if the drug you are taking is on a higher tier. It's more than a list of drugs, and can help you manage your costs and find other medication options.

*The UnitedHealthcare SignatureValue HMO has a formulary, rather than a PDL.
