UnitedHealthcare Pharmacy

Not all drugs are created equal.

Cost and value are not necessarily the same – so we look deeper to make sure your employees get the most out of their pharmacy benefit. Our Prescription Drug List (PDL) organizes all brand and generic prescription drugs into tiers based on Total Healthcare Value.

Every drug is evaluated to determine how well it works, how it compares to others in its class, the total cost, and a number of other significant considerations to make sure that the medications with the highest health care value are affordable for your employees.

Total Prescription Drug List Management

Any Drug, Any Tier

Increase access to affordable medications by placing any drug – brand or generic – in any tier based on its overall healthcare value.


Implement changes to respond quickly and take advantage of market trends, new clinical information and industry opportunities to create value for customers and members.

We've developed a full range of strategic programs and helpful tools for members and customers while maintaining affordable prescription options. With escalating health care costs, management strategies are essential in guiding members to their lowest cost options and keeping costs down. Often this can be achieved with minimal to no member impact.


Our goal is to help our members understand their pharmacy benefit and choose medications that offer the best value. If PDL updates impact your employees, we can help guide them in their decisions through extensive communication, including personalized letters, online tools, and 24/7 customer support.

Customers, Physicians, Pharmacists, Brokers and Consultants:

We also reach out to physicians and pharmacists, so they can guide members through any decisions. We make sure to communicate any changes well in advance. And, if you have any questions along the way, our brokers, consultants and account teams are well informed and ready to help.
